New marbling tip
- For those of you trying to marble in 95 degree heat these days (and for
those of you with year round heat), you know the size breaks down rapidly
and loses viscosity in hot weather. I have my solution (pardon the pun) to
this problem posted at my website, but here it is for the
MARBLING TIP: My strange method of keeping the size bath cool in very hot
weather: Sometimes an air conditioner is not enough.....so, I keep soda
bottles full if water frozen in the freezer and periodically float them in
the size for about 5 minutes. This helps maintain the viscosity of the size
in hot weather, and therefore it holds the floating patterns better and
gives clearer definition.
Hope this helps keep the size (and the hot temper of the marbler trying to
work in this weather) cool and viscous.
Best wishes to all,
