Marbling with red...
- Hi Susa,
I have to agree with Iris that red is the most difficult color to deal with,
especially to get a true red that doesn't turn "orangey." When I was
marbling silk scarves (using acrylics) I found if I wanted red, that I would
use a solid red scarf and marble with whites, greys, & blacks. The red of
the scarf gave the color, the marbling pattern showed up quite exquisitely
and I didn't have to deal with red paint! I would also throw a few dollops
of red on the pattern which gave a two-tone red look, but relied mostly on
the whites/greys/blacks to give the pattern.
