Paper Marbling!

Learn how to make Marbled Paper for gift cards, book binding & loads of other crafts

Saturday, July 10

Making marbled paper is a blast!  It’s easy to do and useful for so many projects – including framing it just on its own!

The process is really fun and allows for lots of experimentation. There are endless ways to vary the results and no two sheets turn out the same.  It is also a tad messy.  Bring or wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on.

We will provide paint, trays, and other gear.
You should bring paper or cardstock to ‘marble’.

The marbled pages sometimes take a while to dry. You might need to pick up what you make a day later.  There are lots of ways we can work this out if needed.

What you need to know:

  • Saturday, July 10
  • 10:00am – 1:00pm
  • At the CLW project space:  Church of the Living Water, 3120 Park Ave, W. Muscatine, IA
    We will be in the basement – go down stairs or drive around back.

    Thanks to CLW for letting us use their project space!
  • Bring a lunch for yourself. (Lunch together makes this even more fun) 
  • This is designed for adults and older youth – people 12 and older will fit right in.
  • Wear or bring old clothes you don’t mind getting paint on – you likely will!
  • Bring about two dozen (more is ok) sheets of paper: cardstock, heavy typing paper, or any other paper you would like to try marbling.  Many kinds of paper will work but best results come from heavy, yet still flexible paper.  Nice drawing paper is excellent.   Index card sizes and larger produce excellent results.
