Jacquard Marbling Kit


Marbling Kit - newly improved!

The ancient art of paper marbling has historically been associated with the book arts. The technique involves floating paints on the surface of a gel-like medium (known as the “marbling size”) and then transferring this floating design onto paper or fabric. Use this traditional technique to make your own patterned fabric, one-of-a-kind wrapping paper, greeting cards, fine art and more. Each design is as unique as a fingerprint! The Jacquard Marbling Kit is easy to use and gives professional-quality results. A great group activity! For ages 8+

Jacquard's Marbling Kit has been improved in the following ways:

  • Replaced Methocel with Carrageenan, which produces finer marbling lines and allows the paints to perform better.
  • Balanced all colors to produce even spreading and maximum depth of color
  • Replaced Green (easy to mix with provided colors) with a vivid Violet
  • (difficult to mix with provided colors)
  • Included Synthetic Gall for greater control and special effects
  • Improved floating of every color

Included in this kit:

yellow, red, violet, blue, white, & black
- .5 fl oz/14 ml Synthetic Gall
