Immerse yourself in the art and intricacies of ‘cloudpainting.’ Learn how to prepare papers and fabric for marbling in a range of techniques and patterns, using acrylic paints, a carrageenan bath, and variety of tools (comb, brush, rake). After the basics, you’ll learn classic patterns such as the French Curl, Spanish Wave, Peacock, NonPareil, Gel-Git and Stone Marble. There will be time to experiment and create your own designs. We will also touch on Turkish Ebru figural marbling, using a stylus.
