Any advice for an unsuccessful newcomer
- Hello all
In the 2 months since I began trying to marble (both paper and fabric) I have yet to have any success whatsoever.
I have tried making the carrageenan in an assortment of ways and ratios and using an assortment of waters. I have tried acrylics, watercolours and gouache with zero success. I have used ox gall and flow improver to aid dispersal - nada.
I am dogged in my determination to be able to marble but I am stumped as to what I can adjust to try and improve matters now.
Any words of wisdom?
My main problem is dispersal - whatever medium I am using.
- What is the temperature of your carrageenan when you work? ...if it is too cold, that will be a big problem. It should be room temperature.
