Floating paints or dyes on a fluid and dragging a feather or comb through creates wonderful patterns. This is the basis of marbling. At a bookmaking workshop some participants used paper I had marbled on the inside covers …. that was the birthplace of this workshop as some want to learn this ancient craft. What paints/dyes to use, what to use as a base so the paint does not sink…. you will learn these things at this workshop and go away with some marbled paper, envelopes, writing set, maybe a blown marbled egg, a pencil, box, handkerchief…….

  1. Two-toned marbling, or akkase ebru, is made using a technique similar to written marbling. Sections of a lightly colored marbled paper are coated with glue and the paper is them immersed into the basin containing darker colors. The lighter parts that have glue on them will remain unchanged, while the part without glue will absorb the darker colors.
