After School Art Club, marbling technique

This was the last session of exploring water and again tried using it as the medium. We started with marbling using water, oil and food colouring thinking about the science behind the technique.

To finish we tried the same technique using diluted acrylics and shaving foam. This was a first for me but some of the children knew the technique and demonstrated to the group.

At the end of the session we sat down and thought about ways the papers could be used in next week’s process. The children decided they’d like to make books about imaginary animals using the strange shapes of the marbling as a starting point. They also decided to bring in a few strange creature from home.
