      Yes, John is right. And read books, look at what out forefathers did, see exhibitions.

      The most important step on your way to learn any sort of decorated paper making,
      however, is to find yourself a good teacher, preferably a master of the trade. Spare
      yourself the disappointment to get stuck just because of a basic mistake you cannot find
      out about because you're lacking experience and proper training.

      Viewing, reading, etc, is fine, but you won't learn enough that way. Decorated paper
      making is mainly about hands on work. The chances to become a good marbler by viewing
      and reading are about as good as becoming a good swimmer by placing your tummy on a
      chair and waving your arms and legs about. Meaning: avoid beginner's blunders by
      starting with a teacher, continue working alone, return to a teacher, continue alone. See
      several teachers; each master has his/her own ways and specialities.

      Sometimes, a (beginner's or master's) blunder turns out to be the start for something
      excitingly new, but I'm afraid that happens about once in a dozen years.
