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.
