Introduction to Marbling

Paper marbling is a centuries-old art form where paint is floated upon a shallow tank of thickened water and drawn through with various tools to create striking, fluid patterns, similar to smooth marble or other kinds of stone. The image is then carefully transferred to an absorbent surface, such as paper or fabric. You’ve probably seen marbled papers in the end pages of books, or on a Kleenex box. Marbled paper, fabric, or wood can be used for collage, quilting, bookbinding, encaustic art, scrapbooking, art journaling, fiber art, and more. Materials Fee covers the use of all equipment, papers and paints.
