Hand marbling is the art of floating paints on top of a thick solution, called size, manipulating those paints into patterns, then transferring the pattern to an object by placing the object on top of the paints. You can marble anything that fits in your tray, from paper to tennis shoes, but we'll focus on making original cotton quilting fabrics. When you're finished you'll have a stack of one-of-a-kind fabrics. Read through the marbling tutorial, then flip through the marbling photo gallery for more pictures that will help you understand the process a bit better.
