Re: Re: [Marbling] Bookbinding /Marbling—Sealing Marbled paper
- That said....I RARELY do it, it is so much work. But it is so worth it to bring up that polish/shine by burnishing. It's like the pre-1860s look, a more subtle shine than the machine calendared Victorian marbled on mass produced books. Customers often ask if I will do it for them, and I say, yes if they are willing to pay four times the price, OR, I tell them how!

both of which are available through conservation suppliers.
