More about Marble Painting
Paper marbling is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce textures similar to smooth marble or other stone. The textures are the result of color floated on either plain water or a viscous solution known as size, and then carefully transferred to an absorbent surface, such as paper or fabric. Through several centuries, people have applied marbled materials to a variety of surfaces. It is often employed as a writing surface for calligraphy, and especially book covers and endpapers in bookbinding and stationery. Part of its appeal is that each print is a unique monotype.
The type we are more familiar with, Turkish marbling, was developed in 15th century Persia, and called ebru (cloud art) by the early artisans. More tightly controlled, it lay within the middle eastern artistic tradition of complex overall texturining. While marbling spread to Europe by the 17th century, the process remained a closely guarded secret known only to a few. For the next 300 years, marbling was primarily connected with the bookbinding trade, decorating endpapers, book covers and the edges of the pages.
Changing tastes and the continuing secretiveness of marblers combined to make marbling an almost lost art by the 1930s, but a great revival of interest began in the ’70s. One reason for the current popularity of marbled motifs is the beautiful complexity of the colors and texturess – they cause one to ask “How do they do that?” What most people don’t realize is how easy paper marbling actually is, and how quickly the basics, at least, can be learned.
Simply put, marbling consists of floating paints on a surface of thickened liquid, manipulating them to create textures, then lifting the textures onto prepared paper. Traditional marbling was done with oils or gouache. Acrylic paints are easier to use, and are chosen by many professional marblers today. Waterbased, safe, and quick- drying, they are capable of producing intricate, clearly defined textures.
