Marbling Kit
An easy-to-use, professional-quality marbling system!

The ancient art of paper marbling has historically been associated with the 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. Use the Jacquard Marbling Kit to make patterned fabric, unique wrapping papers, greeting cards, wall hangings, fine art and more. Each design is as unique as a fingerprint! The Jacquard Marbling Kit is easy to use, gives professional-quality results, and makes for a great group activity! Note: paper and fabric not included; marbling also requires a shallow pan or tray, paper towels, container and whisk for mixing the marbling size, and various combs, rakes, skewers, or stylii for “combing” patterns.
