Aquarellum Marbling

25 Mars 2020
Aquarellum Marbling

The marbling technique consists in making a marbled pattern with the help of colours flotting at the surface of a liquid.

During this easy tutorial, we are going to use something almost everybody has in their fridge: milk! This liquid will let our waterbased Aquarellum inks float at the surface (they would be diluted in water).

You will need:

  • Aquarellum inks
  • 1 container
  • A little bit of milk (Do not waste food, you do not need much milk)
  • 1 stick
  • Thick paper (watercolour type paper. If the paper is too thin, it might rip when it is wet).
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • Coloured crayons, a paint brush, anything you need to personalise your creations.

Step by step instructions:

  1. Draw and cut out different card shapes. Make sure that the shapes you create can fit in the container you will be using.
  2. You can have fun creating different kinds of shapes!
  3. Pour a little bit of milk in the container. You do not need a lot, it should just cover the entire bottom of the container.
  4. Use the pipette you can find in the different Aquarellum kits to drop ink drops on the milk. You can use different colours.
  5. Use the stick to mix the colours and create a pattern you like.
  6. When you are satisfied with the pattern, place one of your cards flat on the surface. Leave if for 5 seconds before removing it. You can decorate several cards with the same colour batch (as long as enough ink remains at the surface).
  7. Leave the cards to dry.
  8. Once the cards are dry, you can personalise them with coloured crayons, Aquarellum inks, stickers and even felt pens! Don't forget to write cute letters at the back

Our special trick: you can dip only part of a card to get awesome modern patterns!
