Intro To Water Marbling: Create Swirling Color Patterns On Paper, Leather, And Silk $48

Water marbling is an ancient technique of lightly applying pigments onto the surface of thickened water in order to create beautiful, swirling designs that may be transferred onto a range of different surfaces such as paper, leather, fabric, and more! In our Intro to Water Marbling class, you will learn about the origins of marbling art and how it was applied in different cultures. You will learn about how to prepare a marbling bath from water and a special marbling solution, and using different DIY tools and marbling colors, you will create mesmerizing, psychedelic color patterns on the surface of the bath. Once you’re happy with your kaleidoscope-like design, we’ll show you how to properly dip paper, leather, wood, and fabric into the bath in order to perfectly transfer your trippy patterns onto each different object! This class is perfect for anyone who sometimes feels intimidated by arts and crafts, because the process requires no previous art experience and it is relatively easy to create impressive, unique, and beautiful designs! Each student will leave with four (4) marbled leather OR wood coasters, one (1) marbled silk pocket square, various marbled papers, as well as the know-how to repeat this mesmerizing art practice at home!
