Chalk Marbelized Paper

By:

Learn how to marble paper with this simple step-by-step guide. It's such an easy technique and can be done in five quick steps. Beautiful marble paper is great for stamping, backing photos or for book making.



Materials:

  • Chalks (Oil-based pastels do not work)
  • Shallow Tray
  • Water
  • Toothpick, skewer, or pencil
  • Craft knife or blade
  • Cardstock
  • Spray sealer or fixative

 

Instructions:

  1. Fill shallow tray with tap water. You need about 1” of water for best results.
     
  2. Scrape some chalk dust over the water so that the dust floats in the water. You don’t want chunks of chalk, you want fine powder. Use at least 2 or 3 different colors for the best effect.
     
  3. With a pencil, skewer, or toothpick make swirls or patterns in the chalk on top of the water. Do this gently. Over agitating the chalks will blend the colors together too much and the result will look more like mud than distinct colors.
     
  4. Place a piece of white cardstock on top of the water. And then pick back up. You don't have to let it sit or set. Carefully lift the paper straight up and set aside to dry.
     
  5. Once dry you can spray with a sealer to set the chalks.


Tips:

  • These papers make beautiful backgrounds for rubberstamped images.
     
  • Try matting photos or journaling with your hand-marbled papers.
     
  • Marbled papers have been used for generations for book making.
