Paper Marbling
This course will teach the basics of water-based (Turkish) paper marbling using acrylic and tempera paints. Learn how to prepare paper for marbling as well as basic marbling techniques. You will then have the opportunity to make your own marbled papers and patterns. Students who wish to marble their own specific types of paper should bring them on the first day of class to be prepared for marbling on day two.
