  • Griffin I would highly recommend Snow Farm in Western Mass where Dan and Regina StJohn teach marbling I believe a couple times a year. Check out Chena River Marblers on the web for their teaching schedule as they teach in many places. If you search the archives of this group you will find many references to classes. Good luck!

  • I've been using these papers for years and normally they work great. From time to time this will happen and I always assume that it was a paper that for some reason I forgot to alum but it's possible that there is the occasional paper with a slightly different amount of "size" that affects the alum. Another possibility: your alum solution is a little thin. Sometimes marbling is a...

  • I have been marbling on silk for a few years and I have been looking into "opaque" acrylic paints for a long time. My conclusion: for the most part they don't exist. There are colors that are more opaque than others - two good examples are Titanium Whie and Pyrole Red.

One of the (many) great things about the Fabric Medium is that it heat sets. So after ironing the paints are permanent...

  • Anyone know how to make Carrageenan? I seem to remember seeing posts on this group talking about way back on the 20th century making ones own. This can't be a small project (I need 6-9 gallons for scarves) but if one can buy the right seaweed it might be a lot cheaper. Any thoughts/recipes? George www.suspensions-design.com

  • I have been exploring the use of Photoshop to combine marbled designs and create new designs. In other-words a digital approach to Over-Marbling. To be honest I like some of the results and don't like others but it does open up an interesting approach to creating interesting fabrics thru printing (say on Spoonflower) or tiles or other mediums suitable for printing. Here are a few...
