      Caroline,I,ve been lurking here for a few years ,mostly because I,ve never marbled paper. I am a fabric marbler.I,ve marbled everything from silk to corduroy. Alot of fabrics work,the smoother,silkier the better.I,m sure canvas would work if you smooth it out first.Washing, or an electric piller work great at times for me. But its not always the material,its your bath,or size,and the paints you use,Its the correct combination that makes it 'work'.All I can say is experiment ,experiment,its a "beautiful thing'. peace Gretchen marbledfabric.com

      liked, I used golden acrylics and carageenan. I was wondering if anyone

        You should have very GOOD luck using silk.

        It usually always works, its very expensive but worth it.

        Remember not to iron or heat set until you have nuetralized/removed the alum from the fabric or it will turn into a strong acid and desinegrate the fiber, just a slight hand wash shjould do it drip dry.

        If your still not sure I can help ya make a nuertal solution.

        Marble the silk and post the results! Cant wait! enjoy!

          Dear Caroline,

          True Blue Art Store in Asheville, NC, 828-251-0028 and
          Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, Gatlinburg, TN,
          865-436-5860 ext.25 (Bonnie) sell a close weave,
          smooth surface canvas that will work. As for silks,
          taffeta, Thai silks (not the company)and silk noils
          (raw silk) can be tricky, but the others work well.
          Thai Silk, 1-800-722-SILK is a good place to start.
          They have yardage and scarf blanks.

          I use Golden on methyl cellulose if you want to try
          that sometime.

          Good Luck, Laura

            Marbling on silk is great fun... it picks up patterns and colors
            beautifully.

            I was wondering if anyone had framed any silk marbling pieces and how
            I would go about it... I've marbled lots of scarves but some of them
            would make great pieces to hang on a wall but I'm not sure where to
            start.
