This term we are joining in on a fortnightly craft class with some of the local home educating families. It's so good to do things we wouldn't normally do due to cost. However by co-oping we have managed to do a few interesting things. This week we tried our hand at paper marbling. I found some interesting YouTube clips. This lady made a flower, and this one shows you a DIY of the process used in paper marbling. This one of The Makers of Marbled Paper at a bussiness - Art of the Marbler is an old documentary explaining the why and how of the process by a company in England.
Our tutor bought a Marbling Kit by Jacquard on eBay.

- 6 Marbling Colors, 1/2 fl oz/14.79 ml each:yellow, red, violet, blue, white, & black
