One of the advantages of marbling with silk is how smoothly it goes down on
the size, with very little chances of air bubbles that you get with paper.
One disadvantage I see to attaching the silk to a hard board is that you
will increase your chances of getting air bubbles (voids) on your design.
By keeping the silk drapped, dropping it to the center first and then laying
down the ends, you have less of a chance of errors. But then again, nothing
ventured, nothing gained.
Best of luck in your adventures,
- Wow! Onelist was THIS email list at one point! They got bought out and
taken over by Yahoo--which is why we're all here...............I
started/opened a marbling forum at Delphi.com, as an alternate place to
post. I was concerned that at some point Yahoo could flatten This email
list--and a back-up would be handy. The Delphi site should still be
operating--and has a much different 'face' in which to post. I think in some
respects it is a better set-up--as threads can be grouped and information
isolated...........Delphi however is about to go 'nova' in some
way--requesting fees. It has not been completely instituted--so the marbling
site I opened there has not been flattened--and remains free to use.
To get to the marbling site at Delphi, this is the corrected link:
They do the usual sign in--blah-blah-blah sign up bit. Once you get past
That---you need to go here:
Anyone from here is welcome to post there and vice versa.

- Dear Jill, I have just stumbled across Message 1074 on the Onelist
site - is this the website I tried unsuccessfully to get into last
year - so far I see the notices are dated in the early 2000's. The
site I joined and then coudn't get any replies from was

do you get into the next bit -
forums.delphiforums.com/marbling/start? I could find no links to
that. I have been using a computer for only six months, and there
are many gaps in my knowledge . . . . it is probably the simplest
thing and blindingly obvious! Joan Ajala--
