Marbling - Methocel Sinking to bottom
  • Hello! I've decided to have a go with the jacquard marbling kit and i'm having a bit of trouble with the
    thickner/methocel,

    I've stuck to the instructions regarding quantities and stirred the solution until it
    was clear, But when I leave it to thicken it seems to be settling on the bottom of the tray leaving a watery top?

    Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong??

    Thanks in advance
  • Hi there,

    It sounds like the methocel had not been completely integrated with the water...are you using a blender or beater to mix the methocel with the water?

  • You have to keep the methocel moving in solution by stirring while it is setting. At least every two or three minutes go back and stir some more.
