Pébéo’s Marbling colours are used according to a technique inspired by Japanese marbling on rice paper in the eleventh century (Sumi nagashi), and then in Europe by nineteenth century bookbinders. It is the process of transferring colours by simple contact with the object to decorate, on a coloured surface. This technique requires patience and attention, as well as a little practice. It can be used in creations on all light surfaces: fabric, paper, card, recycled paper, wood, plaster, etc. On fabric, fix the colours to the iron after drying. The thickener bath can be used for several successive projects. It is, nevertheless, best to use a small amount of thickening bath and change it often.
