The Art of Marbling - There are many different ways to achieve a "marbled" effect on paper or fabric. Deborah marbles 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 she adds the paint she uses a marbling comb or stylus to create a pattern. There are countless possibilities for color and design.
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.
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.
