Okay, yesterday I wrote (in my post) that I would probably write another post yesterday…well I didn’t – my apologies! But hey I’m here now!!
Okay, so this is my first attempt at paper marbling -I can’t tell you how fun it is!! I followed what is called the Suminagashi Paper Marbling technique. All you need is a bin for water that can sit on a flat surface, maybe the word ‘tub’ is a better term. But it shouldn’t be too much bigger than your paper. Then you need ink. I happened to have some black ink on hand…I’m not sure if it the right ink – at first I didn’t think so because it wasn’t really working well. Anyway you also need some dish soap and water.
It’s probably best if you watch the video that I did by Crystal Shaulis here:
She explains it really well, and her work is fantastic!! Here are three more papers that I did:
I am really happy with the result – it makes me want to run out and get the proper ink and some colours too! 🙂
I’m going to use them in my book binding – I can’t wait!
Okay, until next post,
