Re: Handy Art Marbling concentrate
- ah the instructions said warm water and it starts matting up before my eyes. I wonder if I could put it in a quart container and shake it?
I can see, looking at liquid starch, that it does need to be thicker.

When I added it more like you might add cornstarch to a gravy, it worked. I put a bit of room temperature water to it to make it liquidly,(add water to the dry ingredients in a cup) and then whisked it in with a fork really fast. If the water in the tub is warm, it will clump no matter what, so make sure the water in the tub is also room temperature. I found I also had to use more gel substance then it suggested to get a good viscosity, but that could have been my particular brand and not all gel brands.

It just kind of clumps and doesn't suspend the paint. I turned to liquid starch but don't really have enough to provide for a whole class.
