Paper marbling is a wonderful blend of monotype printing, repeat pattern development, and color play! In this one day intensive students will learn the fundamentals of acrylic marbling, including how to select materials and the chemistry of the marbling vat. We’ll discuss the history behind European marbling as we explore traditional techniques, combed patterns, and important troubleshooting. Students will then develop their own palette and style to create a suite of designs to take home with them.
