5013New to this Group, and Marbling, but not to Handcrafts
- Jan 28, 2009Hello Marblers , My name is Jim Kimpell and I find the art of
Marbling fascinating. I have many 18th century books with marbled
edges and frontice pieces. I am a historical Tinsmith & reenactor of
the Great Lakes Fur Trade era, and also do early French, and Canadian
interpretations. We recently bought an acreage with a huge barn in
the heartland of farm country in Iowa, and I am getting my shop set
up in the loft. I just found out last week that my job of 10 years
was permanently eliminated, only 2 weeks after we bought the
acreage,so , with no jobs available in this area, I have decided to
have a try at working for myself, and raising Heirloom vegatables,
Dominique chickens, and uor 5 dogs(rescue animals0 and our miniature
I have no marbling equipment yet, and I am hoping to find someone
that has not used their equipment for awhile that would be willing to
part with everything and maybe get a good bulk deal. I don't want
this to sound like begging, but I haven't got alot of extra cash on
hand at the moment, due to current economy.
So if anyone knows of equipment, books, materials that can be had,
please let me know. I make very nice leather covered small trunks and
a large variety of historical tinware if anyone wants to trade !
I look forward to learning and sharing much with this group.
