Carrageenan is a natural seaweed gelling agent that provides a viscous surface (known as the “marbling size”) excellent for fabric and paper marbling.
Recommended proportions for marbling:
4 teaspoons/19 g Carrageenan to 1 gal/3.79 L water.
In a blender, slowly add the carrageenan to 3 cups/0.71 L warm water and blend until fully dispersed. Pour mixture into a bucket, 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.
Avoid unnecessary contact. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY. May form combustible dust concentrations in air. DO NOT INHALE.
