I'll be doing marbling with the kids (both the big and little ones). We'll be using smaller than usual pans so everyone will get to try it. We'll start with a marbling base and 2-3 colors of paint which are dropped on top.
Just using 2 colors here.
We'll be using Cascade rakes and a stylus to rake designs which will be easy for the little ones.
Lowering a small piece of fabric on top of the design and waiting a few moments for the fabric to look like it's wet.
Then a quick rinse in warm water and voila - My little marblers willl go home with a piece of fabric they designed themselves.
There are so many beautiful patterns you can do with this technique but not enough time to do on fiber day so here's a "look-see" at some of the pretty patterns I will have as samples. This is the Cascade pattern made with the Cascade rake. It was done on silk.
