  3. Place the sheet of printer paper over that marbled paint and gently press down on the paper, so that the paint will be absorbed onto the paper.
     
  4. Lift the paper and place it on the table, with the painted side facing upwards.
     
  5. Use the old credit card to scrape off any excess paint and allow the paper to dry.
