The Art of Marbling - There are many different ways to achieve a "marbled" effect on paper or fabric. I marble with acrylic paint on a bath of water that is made thick by the addition of carrageenan (the powder form of a type of seaweed). Each of the paint colors is dropped onto the bath spreading out in a circle like oil in water. After I add the paint I use a marbling comb or stylus to create a pattern. There are countless possibilities for color and design.
All of my marbled papers are one-of-a-kind but if you see something that you’d like me to try and re-create I’d be happy to.

This is something that I designed after I had my own babies and I couldn’t find a book on the market that I loved. I had an idea of something classic but modern and minimal. I took this idea and worked nights when the girls were little. Five years later my book came to life with the help of two great local manufacturers.
Do you have a favorite children’s book that was loved so much it’s in dis-repair? Let me re-bind it for you and turn it into a beautiful fine binding.
My Suminagashi papers are usually done on colorplan paper because it loves to soak up the color! Colorplan has a wonderful texture and is a heavier weight making these papers ideal for the cover of journals, bookmarks, gift tags or other craft projects.

I love making these contemporary style marbled papers. When I’m doing them I think of street graffiti, Jackson Pollack, and other free flowing art. Often times I’ll over-marble patterns one or more times to add depth, and detail.
