Marbling on leather
  • Has anyone tried marbling on leather? Or know if the marbling paints will work on leather?
  • Hi Murrelw,

    I checked with one of our other moderators and she thinks it is unlikely that the marbling colors will stick to the leather:( . When marbling on fabric and paper, alum is used as a mordant to help the colors stick to the fibres, she doesn't think it will work on leather. Suede may be more likely to work than a smooth leather. You could experiment to see what the effect is--be sure to post your results so we can share the knowledge.

    Anyone else out there have input?
