4304Re: [Marbling] Sprinkled paper/German, French?
- Aug 1, 2007Hej Susanne,
Du har helt ret! Det er ikke Gustavmarmor, men agatmarmor?
Thanks, you are right. It is not Gustavmarmor, but "Agatmarmor"? It is
also a thin and shiny paper, and treated in the same way as "Gustavmarmor".
The animal glue we used was in plasticpackages to keep the glue soft and
avoid the glue to harden. Use it fresh in waterbath or gluepot. The
temperature must not goes over 60 degree Celsius.
