The things you need:
1. A few sheets of handmade paper
2. Oil paints
3. A flat tray with raised edges
Step 1: Fill the tray with water and add a few drops of oil paint. If you want a multi-colour effect add drops of different colours.
Step 2: Take a sheet of handmade paper and dip it into the water completely.
Take it out immediately and leave it to dry by clipping it to the clothes line.
You will see a marble-like print on the paper, in all the brilliant colours that you put into the water.
Try it out with different combinations of colours and use it for letter writing.
Handmade paper is preferred to other types of paper because it absorbs the colour well. However, you can try it out on different papers to see what happens.
