Instructions

Recommended proportions for marbling:
2 TBS/30 g Carrageenan to 1 gal/3.79 L water.

In a blender, slowly add 1 TBS/15 g carrageenan to 3 cups/0.71 L warm water and blend until fully dispersed. Pour mixture into a bucket and repeat with second tablespoon of carrageenan, then add enough water to make a total of 1 gal/3.79 L and stir. For larger quantities, repeat using same proportions. Allow to rest at least one hour or until all bubbles have risen before use. When hand mixing, allow up to 12 hours for bubbles to dissipate and powder to dissolve.
