Thanks for your time
- Some people say the alum residue is bad, others say it preserves paper.
True enough, a lot of 100 year old+ books, the covers have deteriorated the
paper text block has crumbled, and the marbled papers are intact.
You can, by the way, get away with 1/2 strength alum solution in most
cases. Sometimes less, depending on the paper if you are worried about it.
I always found that quickly sponging was way, way quicker and less messy
than dipping. You just need to get used to it.
- Dear the marbling group member,
If there is any place to buy from, I suggest you the natural earth colours
to use at marbling. It is the only way to get the best result on the
traditional Turkish Marbling.
If you want, I can give you some instructions about the places in Istanbul.
Good Luck on your working
