Marbling Day part 2

17th May 2014

Fingers crossed this works!!

This is me sponging Alum solution onto the paper....


...I didn't put enough on the first time and when the paper was peeled back from the paint it had a huge faint part in the middle of the paper!!! I was very careful to put enough on after that.

Tapping the paint off the brush onto the surface, the walls around the 'bath' are covered in plastic and paint splashes, very textured!








...laying the paper down very carefully from top left corner to bottom right...


.....very pleased it worked!!!


Now rinsing off and pegging to dry.


Catherine concentrating....


..I noticed she was tapping with her right hand and when I tried that it worked better....


...it was fun to watch and learn...



...I loved this effect....



Hope my papers come today.....
