[Marbling] Sizing Question
- You get a much finer end product with the carragennan.....nicer clarity.
Make up just as much as you will use in a day or two.....it is quick and
easy to mix up. Just make sure it sits overnight at least before use to
make sure all the little lumps are out.
You can get a preservative for it, but it is made with formaldehyde, and
personally, the fumes make me sick and make my eyes tear even in small
doses. Others preserve it a bit longer with borax, but I find this makes
the colors pale and fuzzy.
Always a trade of with marbling, but the carrageenan is worth it.
