Repost of "Marble Crazy"

This is a post from 2011 by another of our founding member, Rosalita Feero.

Hi All,
Sorry I am so late posting my marbling play day with Kathy Molatch. We had a great day and learned a little more about marbling. However, we also learned we need to know a lot more.
As Kathy mentioned, I mixed the Carageenan without putting Calgon in it. My water is hard and really needed the water softener. We mixed it in later but I don’t think it did as well as it would have if I had put the Calgon in from the get go.
Here is a start on what I want to accomplish. The problem is the paint did not stay where I wanted it.

I sort of like this one but still not quite what I want.
At the end, we got a little funky. I am a what-if kind of gal. So………..

This was not as great. I used transparent purple first and then it was hard to work the opaque paint afterwards.

Here is a picture of my days marbling.

I had a great day and hopefully will find some more time soon to try again.
