Marbling Day

Three of my friends came over yesterday and we had an absolutely marvelous time marbling. The day was perfect, sun with a bit of clouds, no wind to speak of till later in the day. We started at around 10:30am and finished our first batch of size at around 12:30, so I made another batch to set while we ate lunch. I had made a Tiramisu (one of my favorite desserts). They loved it. After lunch we got back to another couple hours of marbling. We were very productive. I ended up with 24 pages and some silk. Fran brought over some silk pieces (she does silk paint and sells the supplies), and Sharon brought over some cotton, so besides our paper we had some nice extras. I had made all kinds of rakes and combs using toothpicks, finishing nails and popsicle sticks They were also spaced in various sizes from 1/4" to 1 1/2" apart. I had also hot glued them so they were water proof.
Our next venture will be paste Paper over at Fran's place. Looking forward to that. We're still figuring out the logistics of when we can all get together.

Beautiful marbling! I need some art friends to play with. Can't wait to see more. I re-checked out the marbling books from the library this week. You are an inspiration!
