So you are new to Body Marbling and have a ton of questions. What type of paint should I use, how do you get the paint to float, where can I get the supplies to make a Body Marbling Kit? The Body Marbling industry is really tight lipped and protect their secrets. They will only give non specific details on how to properly put together a Body Marbling Kit. We decided to contact several of the top Body Marbling crews and none of them would give us any information on how it is done. But have no fear, we have figured out their secrets. It took our team many weeks to figure out the Body Marbling process.


We have heard from many people that have tried and failed to get the desired results that they see from the pros. This does not surprise us one bit. The problem is that Body Marbling is not as easy as it looks. There are many variables when setting up your Body Marbling studio. You must have the correct pre-soak, the correct Body Marbling acrylic paint, and a proper post rinse for the paint to properly stick to your body. Most people that contact us were able to get the Body Marbling acrylic paint to float but were unable to get the results they were looking for because the acrylic paint would not adhere to their skin.


There are many types of marbling kits available online but they are not meant to adhere to your skin. These marbling kits are made for decorating objects and not people and can even be hazardous. Using the correct acrylic Body Marbling paint is extremely important. I would strongly advise to buy a full kit that comes with everything you need to start Body Marbling. Once you see how it works, you can make your own supplies. The kit we put together from our local arts and crafts store.


Lumnimarble Body Paint is the only paint that we found that was specifically marketed for Body Marbling and is non-toxic. The Lumnimarble Acrylic Body Paint floats effortlessly on water and attaches to your arm instantly. Lumnimarble also makes a Glow Paint that looks awesome under black light that is great for nighttime or indoor parties. They also sell complete Body Marbling Kits that include everything you need to have a successful Body Marbling party. The thing we liked best about the Lumnimarble paint is the fact that it was premixed and took all the guess work out of making your own. We are a little bit hard headed and decided to make our own paint since we wanted to discover the whole process to expose the secrets behind Body Marbling. It was a very time consuming process.


  1. This is the process we used to marble our arms. We are not saying that this is the way that the pros do it, but we got similar results. Before dipping our arms into the paint, we soaked them using a pre measured saline solution. Once you pre soak your arms, you allow it to dry naturally or use a hair dryer to speed up the process. The salt that dries on your skin will allow the acrylic paint to adhere to your arm.
  2. A few hours before doing our Body Marbling we prepared our water with a thickening agent and let it set until we were ready to get started. We found several non toxic food based thickeners that work very well. These thickeners are used in various types of food as a thickening agent. It took us weeks of practice to get the correct measurements to get the ink to float perfectly. We found that the thickening mix was good until it was completely saturated with paint or about three days, whichever came first.
  3. The paint we used was acrylic paint that you can buy at any hobby store. We mixed the acrylic paint with water and added a non toxic surfactant to get the paint to spread out over the water. When dropped onto the water, the ink should make a circle between one and three inches.
  4. We then slowly dipped our arms into the paint and achieved the desired results. It was amazing how far we came in a couple of weeks. There are many more details to the process but we didn't want to bore the average reader with all the in and outs.
