[Marbling] Over-aluming and newsprint
Wall Street is my favorite too. I made a contact with
someone who delvers them. I get the left overs.
As far as alum for marbling with Golden acrylics on
paper I have to make the solution stronger to get it
to stick consistently. I use 4 teaspoons per cup of
water. For fabric I use 1/2 cup to a gallon (1 1/2
teaspoons to 1 cup water).
