833Question about marbling
- Nov 3, 2004Dear marbling colleagues,
I am looking for somebody, who can help me.
Years ago, I attended the International Marblers Meeting in Santa Fe. Among
others, there were many decorative paper makers there. We could see hand
made papers, paste papers or marbled papers from all of the world. I was
one of marblers there and I have bought or exchanged many papers with others
for my collection.
One paper, however, was done by a technique which I am not able to copy. A
German marbler made the paper. It had very vivid colors and looked shiny.
She charged 80 dollars for one sheet, which was very expensive in comparison
When I asked her how she made the paper, she said, she used oil colors on
hot water. I have tried this, but have had no success in recreating the
technique. My papers looked like ordinary oil based papers on water.
Does anybody know how she did it?
