- yes, you are correct. The white of the fabric absorbs the color just like
the white of watercolor paper absorbs the color to make it paler. You can
also marble on patterned cloth for interesting effects.
I have had good luck with several brands of acrylics on cotton or silk
fabrics. Pro Chemical just re-did their whole line of paints and they are
supposed to be better now. Linda Moran does a lot of marbling on fabric.
http://www.marbledmusings.com/author/linda-moran/ she also does digital
marbling and some of them are shown on her masthead.
Lucille Scelfo is the one who introduced me to Pro Chem Paints - that's
what she uses.
They might answer some questions for you if you contact them directly
