Antique marbleized methods

"Marbleizing ” is one of the most suggestive and original ways of hand decorating paper. With this process we obtain shades of color and designs not reproducible with other methods. The colors are sprinkled onto a liquid base made up of water and a jelly-like solution. The colors are then spread onto the surface of this solution and blended with various types of tools (brushes, combs, etc.) until the design is obtained. The sheet of paper is then placed on the solution and the original design is created!.
