* A marble paste made of marble dust and 100% polymer emulsion.
* Used to build heavy textures on rigid supports and create three-dimensional forms.
* Dries to the hardness of stone. It can be sanded or carved when thoroughly dry.
* Can be handled like clay if the top of the container is removed and some of the water is allowed to slowly evaporate until it reaches a clay-like consistency.
* Adheres to any non-oily, absorbent surface.
* Drying too quickly causes mud cracking that is usually cosmetic, not structural.
* When mixed with acrylic colors will act as a weak tinting white, while increasing thickness and rigidity.
* Excellent substrate for acrylic paint, oil paint, oil pastel, oil bars, watercolor, graphite or dry pastel.
* Apply with knife, brush, cake decorating tools, etc.
* To prevent shrinkage cracks (mud cracking), dry slowly by covering loosely with plastic wrap. Apply less than 1/4 thick.
* Mix with acrylic colors to produce a colored tinted paste.
