- Hi, All,
A friend of mine wants to learn to marble, and I am glad to share what I know
and point her to resources. We are planning a "play day" soon. She is an
incredible gourd artist, painting finely detailed pictures on gourds of all
sizes and shapes. She wants to marble on gourds as an adjunct to her art. Is
there anyone on the list who can give me some information on prepping the
surface or other techniques, like getting it into the size without popping up?
Please and thank you!

item onto the gourd in a discreet and removeable manner, then to create
a, 'vat' of carageenan to roll the gourd in. I'd move very slowly, and
make sure the colors were very intense. I have a tendancy to use a
thicker carageenan base, and find that works well for many of my
marbling projects. I'd alum it in the same way as I'd alum anything
