- There is not much to it except deciding which paint to use. This depends on the effect you

There is no single material in decorated paper making that can do everything and has no
I do not marble, so there is no personal experience about paints to share, but my
marbling colleage from Leipzig, who is the third generation of professional marblers, does
it all the time, her sheets look as good as mine, so there are no grave problems about
alum etc. I have seen and handled her sheets.
About screaming at people: I was exasperated, and it was meant to be seen. Of course I do
not 'know' a person when I know her/his name - I do not even know whether a name given
via e-mail is the real name, if it comes to that - but if I am expected to share the

- Every large list--will have a number of people who do not post-merely 'lurk'
and this list is no different than any other. Every list will have writers

Dropping the capslock key--for myself--and all others.
