I want to make the marbleized paper, but I can't find alum or methyl cellulose-any suggestions? Will liquid starch work as well? We are working our way through the Craft Encyclopedia!
Wow, Angie, and you're already at M for marbleizing!? Marbleizing is fun and easy, but it really does require the right materials. There is a technique involving starch, but it also requires oil paint and turpentine. The marbleizing method we recommend is non toxic and consistently produces stunning results.
If you can't find alum or methyl cellulose in your neighborhood, order it online at Talasonline.com.
