Marbling is the centuries-old art form where paint is floated on water, special tools are used to create designs and patterns, and then the image is captured by placing paper (or fabric or wood or other materials!) on top of the water where it is immediately and permanently affixed.
You’re probably most familiar with the marbled papers in the end pages of old books. Or maybe you’ve seen marbled patterns on boxes of Kleenex brand tissues. Or perhaps you’ve strolled the streets of Venice or Istanbul and seen shops filled with large sheets of marbled papers ready for your personal use. Or maybe marbling is new to you all together. If so, you’re in for an amazing ride!
