SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Oil paint set
  • Turpenoid – used for thinning the paints
  • Flat pan
  • Water
  • Bamboo skewers or toothpicks
  • Photo mats or cardstock
  • Small disposable cups
  • Disposable spoons
  • paper towels
  • Picture frames
  • Clear Sealer

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Start by squeezing a bit of paint into a small disposable cup and then add some turpenoid to thin it out. Mix it well with a disposable spoon. It should be about the consistency of 2% milk. You can also add more white oil paint to lighten the color. Play with the color schemes you like and have fun making new colors.
  2. Grab a flat pan, large enough to fit your largest mat or cardstock. Fill halfway with water.
  3. Once all paints are mixed slowly pour them on top of the water in the pan. They are the right consistency if the paints float on the top of the water. Continue adding colors.
  4. Once all colors are added, take a bamboo skewer or toothpick and swirl the paint together filling all the gaps and creating a cool pattern.
  5. Now slowly set your mat or cardstock on top of the paints making sure to not submerge your piece. It should literally float on top of the water.
  6. Pull the mat off slowly and set on a paper towel to dry.
  7. As the paints are used, either add more paint or just continue to dip the cardstock until all the paint is gone. The marbled pattern will get lighter and lighter with each dip.
  8. Since it is oil paint, it will take a couple of days to dry. After about an hour, cover each cardstock with another piece of cardstock and add some books on top of it so it will dry flat. Once dry, spray the mats with some clear sealer.
  9. Add them to photo frames and display.
