Last Sunday, I took a class in marbling. I had no idea how it was done before signing up for the class, and just kind of signed up because (a) it's pretty, (b) it was good timing, and (c) I like the teacher.
I did have some reservations because it was a paper craft and I don't normally do those- making nice cards and the like is just something I never do. I like to wear my art, not stick it on a wall where it can, AHEM, get drowned in a flood- I like to wear it. Marbling can be done on fabric (and indeed, two of these pieces are on silk), but we didn't do much of that.
Yeah, a few of them Had Issues. Namely, if the paper doesn't lie down exactly flat and progressively into the paint, you get bubbles.The papers on the left in particular were of stiffer paper than the rest, and that shit WOULD NOT BEND. Gah.
But most of them came out really very pretty. Especially the rainbow ones, once I figured out one COULD put that much paint on the surface.
While I don't think I'll do this on my own at home- too complicated to set up, plus I live with cats- it was a cool thing to do.
And now I have to figure out what to do with them. Sure, I could do collage... or put them on a wall...but...
Anyone know how to turn paper into jewelry?
