Jacquard Marbling Kit


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+
