Jacquard Marbling Class Pack – newly improved!
The ancient art of paper marbling has historically been associated with book arts. The technique involves floating paints on the surface of a gel-like medium known as the “marbling size”. Then, this floating design is transferred onto paper or fabric. Jacquard’s Marbling Class Pack makes marbling easier than ever. It allows students to experience this traditional technique with professional quality results.
Students can create their own patterned fabric, one-of-a-kind wrapping paper, greeting cards, as well as fine art and more. Marbled fabric can be incorporated into a large project such as a class quilt or wall hangings and more. You can even create marbled silk scarves! Each design is as unique as a fingerprint. Marbling is a great group activity!
NOTE: You will need to supply fabric or paper for marbling, newspaper strips or paper towels, shallow pans or trays for marbling, as well as a container and whisk for mixing the marbling size. You will also need to provide various hair picks, combs, rakes, skewers or stylus tools for “combing” patterns.
Art instructors, classroom teachers, as well as resource specialists and anyone working with large group of kids are often challenged to find fun, affordable group projects. In response to this, Jacquard has bundled several of their product lines into convenient “Class Packs.” Imagine being able to add a whole new creative dimension to an art, science, history or cultural studies curriculum by incorporating a fabric-based art project! Ages 8+ (up to 30 individuals).
