Floating Clouds, an Introduction to Paper Marbling - 1 Day

Use your creative flare to produce paper with explosions of colour and beautiful patterns.

Date(s): 10th August 2019

Suitability: Beginners (Level 1)

Paper Marbling: The art of paper marbling involves floating inks onto a liquid solution. The inks can be applied using different methods.

Tools can also be used to manipulate the floating clouds of ink into different patterns. Paper is then laid onto the pattern and transferred .

Then the magic happens, as you watch with amazement as you peel back the paper from the water and reveal your creation.

The paper is then left to dry and is pressed flat for up to 48hrs.
