1331RE : [Marbling] Hello Iris, John Ang, Sandy and Jan...
- Sep 25, 2002Hi Marlene
Have you tried contacting your customs people to see if you could get some
kind of ruling about the importation of carrageen. Perhaps Nancy at
Colophon could advise, as she ships to Australia. You could ask the
supplier to provide a certificate stating the contents and its
use. Another alternative is to contact some of the European marblers to
find out how they source their supplies. Geert van Daal and Karli Frigge
from the Netherlands use powdered carrageen, and Marie Ange Doizy of France
may use powdered, or boiled carrageen. Their names will be in the marbling
directory which has just been produced by Marie Palowoda. Carrageen in its
natural state should be available in Europe, and there are many recipes
around on how to produce the size.
I don't think you need to give up on carrageen yet!! :-)
Please contact me personally or via the list if you need further information
Try contacting this bookbinding school in Switzerland.
