In this 2.5 hour workshop participants will explore traditional paper marbling techniques on paper to create unique and beautiful papers for printing and bookbinding. We will begin with discussing preparation and set up for marbling, including mixing a carrageen size bath, mixing and applying alum mordant to paper, and mixing custom pigments using acrylic paint and gall. This will be followed by demonstrations in traditional marbling techniques in pattern making including, stone marble, nonpareil, peacock, chevron, and more. Students will have their own marbling tray and make a variety of marbled papers.
