Without a doubt, marbling is the trend to watch right now. It’s everywhere! The technique of dipping items into a tub that has color floating on top of water, is a simple yet dramatic way to create the marbling effect on such things as a vase, a box, and paper, for a beautiful tablescape.
This project is a great outdoor activity for a summer day. Grab a pan of water and your favorite colors and 2 or 3 items to dip. You can even dip paper! Glue the marbled paper to a recycled can or jar for a darling pencil holder everyone will admire.
Put drops of Silver as the first color on top of water.
Add second color of Lemon Yellow on top of water, in the center of the first Colour.
Add third color of White on top of water, in the center of the second color.
Stir the colors together with a craft stick until you have the pattern you desire. Work quickly before the paint starts to dry.
Place paper on top of water, picking up the paint onto the paper.
Lift the paper up to reveal paint on the paper. Hang to dry.
Cut paper to fit the item to be covered, such as a recycled can or jar.
Apply adhesive to ends of paper and wrap around item. Let dry.
Tip: You can place a rubber band around the paper to hold until it dries.
To marble additional items, add more paint on top of water and stir until you have the pattern you desire.
Roll a bottle, box, or any other item onto the water to pick up the paint onto the item. Let dry.
