Re: [Marbling] Re: CARRAGEENAN
- Hello Enid.
Sorry for the late reply but I never check my Yahoo mail. Guess I should start.
Anyway, Where do you live because I might want the lessons. I want to be able to
marble wood also with a primer. I did it once and it turned out OK, but I know
it can get better with the proper lessons. My AOL address is zeek714@...
This is the one I use most.
Thanks again and God Bless

Hi Joe, It's not hard to find caragheenan or methyl cellulose for use as
marbling size. I have worked on both with success. You adjust your colors
differently, based on the viscosity of the size. What colors are you using?
I am open to giving you lessons if you are willing to travel. I have taught in
your area but have nothing coming up in the near future there. Short of that, I
might be able to offer some helpful suggestions to specific questions by e-mail.
