Hi all you marbeles people!
I`m hereby introducing myself: i`m 27 years of age and beeing a
bookbinder by profession I use marbled paper for endpapers, covers
so on... I have some experience in marbling with "karragen-mose" (the
norwegian spelling) but I mostly buy my marbled papers.
Soon I´m supposed to teach a class of art students (introductory
a bit about marbling, and I´d like to demonstrate this with the
MC as the size and oil-painting as the colours. I am well experienced
in creating all the trad patterns in the traditional tech, but I have
no experience whatsoever using MC and oil-colours.
MY Q TO YOU ALL: please give me some hints on your experience with
type of marbling tech. Any information you have on this topic is
relevant. Especially the chemical part. How much of what to blend
this and so on... E-mail me on: mailto:han-ols@...
or reply to
Awaiting my mailbox to flow with tips and hints, I`ll start trying
