Measure carrageenan in the necessary proportions, mix it with warm drinking water (min. room temperature) and pour carrageenan into the water.  For the perfect result, you have to mix with a hand blender (not mixer). Mix well until particles disappear. If carrageenan solution still has particles you can use a filter. But it’s not recommended.
Wait for the bubbles disappear. If you are in rush you can clean the surface with paper. Don’t sweep paper on edge of mixing bowl. You can do this application over and over again till the bubbles disappear.
For perfect result rest your carrageenan solution for 12-24hr. in a cool place.
Before using, stir slowly and thoroughly, pour the solution into the tray.

Video tutorial:

Carrageenans are a family of linear sulfated polysaccharides that are extracted from red edible seaweeds (Irish moss). There are three main varieties of carrageenan, which differ in their degree of sulphation. Kappa-carrageenan has one sulfate group per disaccharide. Iota-carrageenan has two sulfates per disaccharide. Lambda carrageenan has three sulfates per disaccharide. Carrageenans are widely used in the food industry, for their gelling, thickening, and stabilizing properties. For many years Ebru artists are using carrageenan Ebru water (a.k.a. size)
