Other Supplies

12” x 12” Stretched canvas, Waxed paper, Tin cans or disposable cups, Paper towels, Craft sticks

Instructions

  1. Protect your work surface by placing a sheet of waxed paper over it.
  2. Using the Dirty Pour Technique, squeeze a small amount of each color out into a disposable cup by layering one color over the previous one. If desired, gently stir the colors in the cup once using a craft stick.
  3. Pour the colors out onto the canvas. Lift the canvas and begin tilting it in a variety of directions so that the paint flows and swirls creating a fun marble effect.
  4. Be sure to tilt the stretched canvas in all directions covering the sides as well. If there is too much paint remaining, tilt the canvas to pour off the excess paint.
  5. Set the canvas flat on risers (such as disposable cups) on a level surface and allow to dry. Marbling paint will dry within 24 hours and will be cured within 48 hours.
  6. Once cured, spray the painted surface with FolkArt Clear Acrylic Sealer.
