Pebeo Marbling Bath Ink Thickener opens the door to a world of creative possibilities on a variety of light surfaces, including fabric, paper, card, recycled paper, wood, and plaster. With this versatile product, you can achieve stunning marbling effects that add a touch of uniqueness to your projects.

To prepare the thickener bath, simply mix 2 teaspoons (7g) of Marbling thickener into 1 litre of cold water while stirring vigorously with a whisk. Allow the mixture to stand for 2 hours. Then, pour a 1 to 2-cm thick layer of the gel into a plastic tray or dish larger than the objects you wish to decorate.

The thickener bath can be used for multiple projects, but it's recommended to use a small amount and change it frequently for optimal results.

The marbling process is a fascinating journey of creativity:

  1. Carefully place the chosen Marbling colours on the surface of the bath using the dropper. Alternate light and dark colours to create captivating patterns without mixing.
  2. Let the drops spread for a few seconds before working with a stick to guide and manipulate the colours, producing various marbling effects like stippled or combed patterns.
  3. Once your marbling is complete, gently place your fabric or paper on the surface of the coloured bath, let it sit for 10 to 15 seconds, and then remove it. Rinse quickly under running water to remove excess gel and colour mixture, and place the decorated object on a flat surface to dry.

To ensure the best results, consider conducting preliminary tests on your chosen object. On some surfaces, Marbling colours may lighten to varying degrees upon drying. For textiles, satin lining is recommended for its glossy finish, which enhances the Marbling colours.

Marbling paints can also be used in water without a marbling bath, resulting in narrower marbled effects and softer shades. Air-drying takes just minutes, and for fixing on textiles, a brief application of heat without steam or an oven at 150°C for 5 minutes does the trick. Cleaning up is a breeze with soapy water. With Pebeo Marbling Bath Ink Thickener, your creative journey is as fluid as your imagination.
