Hobby & Craft: Glass & Ceramic Paint
- Marbling Class Pack$129.50
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”) and then transferring this floating design onto paper or fabric. Jacquard’s Marbling Class Pack makes marbling easier than ever and 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, fine art and more. Marbled fabric can be incorporated into a large project such as a class quilt or individual pillow covers, wall hangings and more. Each design is as unique as a fingerprint. A great group activity!
NOTE: You will need to supply fabric or paper for marbling, newspaper strips/paper towels, shallow pans/trays for marbling, container & whisk for mixing the marbling size and various hair picks, combs, rakes, skewers or stylus for “combing” patterns.

- Marbling Color$8.95
Marbling is the ancient art of floating paint on the surface of thickened water (known as the “marbling size”) and then transferring the floating design onto paper or fabric. It has a rich history throughout Europe and Asia.
Jacquard’s marbling system (available in the Jacquard Marbling Kit) eliminates the guesswork that is typically associated with marbling and allows even beginners to achieve professional-quality results. All Jacquard’s Marbling Colors spread equally on the marbling size and produce the most intense colors possible. On fabric, the Marbling Colors are soft to the touch and completely washfast after heat setting. On other porous and semi-porous surfaces, the paints have excellent adhesion.
