I have never marbled paper, though I long ago helped my grandmother marble old glass jars and bottles using a water-filled bucket and odds and ends of oil-based house paint. (They were a big hit at the church bazaar.) I have always been fascinated by the process, and since I will be posting about another paper decorating technique —paste paper— on Sunday I thought some marbling videos would do nicely for today.
The first video is about the production of marbled papers for the Folio Society. It’s only two and a half minutes so you probably have time for it even if your life is quite busy.
If you have a little more time, the second video (just under thirteen minutes) describes marbling as done at Douglas Cockerell and Son in 1970.
Have a lovely weekend.
