RE: [Marbling] Waxing papers
- I agree waxing is not necessary to polishing if one has the proper tools,
it does let the burnisher glide easier though. Soap works just as well. But
I think Joan was looking for a more protective coating in case of wetness.
Jake Benson at one conference did a nice demo of Turkish paper polishing
using egg white and alum, then burnishing. I still have the papers I did
there.....it gave a really lovely soft shiny surface. Can't remember the
proportions though, or even if I have all the materials
right.....Jake....are you out there???
