Hi. I didn't mean to malign Ms. Gruenebaum (GG)
personally, and not even the English translation of
her work (I also heard it was originally written in
German), but simply the inadequacy of this text to
instruct a novice pupil.
Gabriele's book does made a lot more sense after I was
able to attend a marbling class. In the meantime, I'd
recommend almost any of the 'modern books' with
several photographs of the process. I think there is
a book by Diane Vogel or Maurer. All I could find on
The Ultimate Marbling Handbook : A Guide to Basic and
Advanced Techniques for Marbling Paper and Fabric
(Watson-Guptill Crafts) by Diane V. Maurer-Mathison.
Quite a bit more than GG's book, but first timers will
find it much more helpful.
