How to Marble with Acrylic Paint
Marbling is a fun technique that uses colors and a viscous solution known as size. When I was younger I would create marbled paper and use it as stationary all the time. This project is different then marbling on paper because we use acrylic paint for our colors, a pouring medium as our size and a canvas as our surface. This art piece dries very shiny, looks fancy, and works great as decor.
Marbling is over the top, fun! You never know what the end result will be, which makes this a good Process Art Project. It is so simple to create these paintings that it is a great project for every level of artist. You can say, "I love you" by gifting this fun project. I made this one into a Valentines art project by pouring heart shapes with the paint. I wonder what yours is going to turn out like?

Thank you. I may make some of these using a Xmas tree next year and give as gifts to my Crafty Christmas Ladies who fix things, have a craft sale at church, and then give to the Benevolance Fund.

I love that this post shared with us that it is possible for us to go with marbling using acrylic paint. My wife has been looking for activities to do with the kids. Maybe I will buy them an acrylic paint kit for them to do marbling.
