In the world of Paper Marbling, metallics are rare due to the heavier weight of these types of pigments. Since marbling pigmens must float perfectly on the surface of the water bath, metallics prove challenging. The use of rakes and combs is also tricky, requiring carefully manipulated movements of these heavy paints in order to achieve the desired effects without sinking or breakage.
This class will also explore the exciting and uncharted territory of “Over-marbling”, where one pattern is superimposed upon another to create a magnificent and complex play of pattern.
During the morning students will learn how to handle these paints, and the instructor will introduce new and more intricate patterns.
The afternoon session is dedicated to personal practice with hands-on guidance from the instructor.
*Please note that paper marbling is a wet process and papers made in the workshop may not be dry at the end of class. Students may return to SFCB after the workshop to retrieve any papers left to dry at the of the day.
