I wanted to show you a great technique that I have developed using Dylusions Ink Sprays. I was looking for a way to make end papers for an altered book class some time ago, and stumbled upon the technique of marbling using paints and water. I wondered if you could use it with Dylusions Sprays, and discovered that you could!
I used the darkest of the colours as the sprays are formulated to react with water, so they do fade, and the darker the colour the better the marbling. Take 2 or 3 colours and use a plastic or metal tray ( I ended up using one of those Ikea plastic drawers that fit in their wooden units- perfect size!)
|Sprays, water and tray|
|Spray into the water|
|the colours will move about on their own but use a stick if you need to.|
|Lay paper gently into the water. allow time to soak up colour|
|Lift out paper and lay on kitchen towel to dry|
|A selection of marvellous marbling!|
Be warned as the sprays are water soluble, the colour fades as it dries on the paper, but you get some great marbling effects.
|Finished brighter colours.|
I do hope you try this very simple but effective technique.
