195Re: [Marbling] Introduction
- Mar 31, 2000Welcome to the list.
I was also fortunate to have met Mr Valese in Venice. We found his shop
while holidaying there. At that time I only had a passing interest in
marbling. We struck a conversation about his work and he was kind enough to
invite my wife and I to his studio where he demostrated marbling to us. He
did a piece of Italian vien and on that he did some flower design. I got to
keep that marbled paper. From that time onwards I found great interest in
I believe Alberto using tragacanth gum for his size and he doesn't alum his
paper. I forgot to ask him what type of paint he uses. Do you have any idea?
Mr Valese shop is at Venice, S.Marco - Campo S. stefano 3471
P.S. He has a pet dog call sumi.
