Floating ink or paint on water has been documented in Japan as early as 986 CE and marbled papers became wildly popular in the 17th and 18th centuries throughout Europe and the Middle East. It is an art form made of recipes and secrets that have been passed through many generations and apprenticeships. Due to the protective nature that many Marblers have about their process, it has not been well documented throughout history and today it is considered an endangered art form.
Marble paper by floating acrylic paint on a bath of seaweed water. Practice beginner foundational patterns, learn to make a marbling comb, and explore abstract and contemporary marbling methods. Take home your own marbled papers that can be used to create book covers, collages, wrapping paper, origami, framed art, and much more.
All supplies are furnished with registration fee. Pre-ordered paper marbling kits are available to take home for an additional $95 which includes 5 hand mixed colors, powdered carageenan, alum, pre-treated paper, brushes, instructions, and a small marbling tray -- so that you can continue your practice at home.
