Here are some more!
I have some slightly larger copies on my blog here: http://thelibrarymender.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/even-more-marbling/
, if you wanted to see some of the details. The fifth one is kind of :/ just because in person, it's sparkly and gold but on the computer it just looks sort of white. Oh well!
I'm having a good time!
I've spent a while trying to get good enough pictures of these to use in my first "completed items" post and just realized that these things called scanners exist
Whoops. Anyway, I've recently been getting into marbling and have so far marbled a boatload of papers. I still haven't tried any cloth or non-paper objects, but I plan to try it!
Heeere are a few:
And here are two goofs:
On this one, I didn't notice that most of my paint had sunk below the size and put down the paper and got...just the black. Haha, mistake! But I think it looks interesting, so I figured I would keep it.
And this was actually my favorite print of the batch, so the middle smear was such a bummer for me. There was a lump in the size that hadn't mixed properly, and so all of the paint just sort of sliiiid off to the side and didn't stick to the paper correctly. Arrrgh! I was hoping to use it in my bookbinding, but unless I make a really little book, I won't be able to use it. I can still cut it up to use elsewhere, so it's ok.
I guess I'll just have to try a similar color combination in the future.
I hope you guys enjoyed! I'm doing my best to de-lurk and start posting, and get over general new-poster-nerves. See you around!
