673[Marbling] Waxing papers
- Aug 19 4:37 AMI generally do not finish my papers in any way, as I get hardly any
offsetting or "rub-off" at all. If I want to polish them, I lightly glide a
bar of parrafin wax (the kind for sealing jelly jars) over, or a candle can
be used. Just enough to allow a burnisher to glide without tearing the
I use a small rectangular agate, about 2.5" X 3.5" and 1/4" thin, with
rounded corners as a burnisher that fits in the palm of my hand. You rub
this on a hard surface as hard as you can until you bring up a shine. I
wouldn't do a whole sheet, just enough needed for the book or whatever.
Very hard work.
