17C440 - Cloud Painting: An Introduction to Paper MarblingOctober 28-29, 2017
Around the world, from China to Turkey and all throughout Europe, paper marbling has intrigued us for over 600 years. The vivid colors and intricate designs
capture our attention - and the making of marbled art is pure magic. Even a beginner can create beautiful work, yet there is enough challenge and variety
that marbling can become a lifetime pursuit. We will start be showing you how a marbling studio is set up, from making the size, or carrageenan from a
seaweed base called Irish Moss, to preparing the acrylic colors and assembling the necessary tools. You will first learn the basic techniques and patterns
such as the French Curl, Gel-Get, Nonpareil, Stome Marbling, and Spanish Wave, among others. Then we will explore more modern variations mixed with traditional
techniques. You will leave with at least 20 absolutely lovely papers to use for your own projects, whether scrap booking, jewelry, bookbinding, or framing
