Marbled Smooch™

by Lydia Fiedler

Create a marbled background with Smooch and water.


  • Colored Smooch™ Pearlized Accent Ink

  • Bowl of water

  • Watercolor paper


  1. Step 1

    Fill a bowl or container with tap water.

  2. Step 2

    With a light color of Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink, touch the applicator to the water's surface to create circles of pigment.

  3. Step 3

    With a bolder color of smooch, touch applicator to the water's surface, both inside and outside the circles of lighter pigment. The longer you hold the brush in the water, the larger your circle will be.

  4. Step 4

    Fill up an area larger than the shape you intend to marbleize with Smooch in a pattern you like.

  5. Step 5

    Close the Smooch and use the lid of the container to swirl the pigments into a marbled pattern.

  6. Step 6

    Place a piece of die cut watercolor paper face down onto the surface of the water.

  7. Step 7

    Immediately remove paper and set on mat to dry - do not blot.

  8. Step 8

    Use marbled paper on finished project
