Re: watercolor vs. acrylic marbling?



Not everyone will agree that Acrylic marbling works best. Although the colors
in the watercolor marbling paints may be a bit more difficult to get
balanced, you have much more control and can get much finer detail. If your
colors are mixed properly and your paper is treated properly with alum the
watercolors will not rub off. The only advantage I can see to Acrylic
marbling is that the paints are less expensive and you can use them on
fabric. Jacqueline Sullivan
