  • Hi! Welcome to the magic and mystery! I marble scarves with methocel all the time, and occasionally use Dye-na Flow. My experience is very similar, and especially with the magenta, it seems to dry on the surface of the size very quickly, and I get jagged edges (called crazing). Other times, I get wonderful water-colory effects, and some colors won't spread, but if they are the 3rd...

Add just one drop at a time, and note that too much surfactant can also cause paints to drop. These two surfactants can be diluted if one drop...

  • Hi! George offered great information. Other resources are Dharma, Pro-chemical and Golden, all of which have good tutorials on their respective websites, and talk about their acrylic paints. There are books available as well - Laura Sims' Marbling guide (not sure if that is the right title - look for it at Amazon under her name) and Diane Maurer Mathison has recently announced the...

  • Dear Regina, Many thanks for taking the time to respond to my query - believe me, I would love to go with them!
