Vibrant Feathers is a bold piece of hand-marbled paper in bright blues, greens accentuated with brown and white. The vibrant colors roll across the paper in constant movement from darks to lights. Wings, feathers, ripples and ferns all can be found in the changing colors.

This piece could be used in lots of craft projects as well as in bookbinding. It would a wonderful piece for a natural collage, for greeting cards or scrap booking.

The paper is 14"x16" with direction long. Base paper is drawing paper - approx. 70lbs (104gsm)
This marbled paper is great for all book arts and sturdy enough for many paper arts and craft projects.

Marbling on paper is an ancient art form that was made popular in the 18th century for endpapers on books. To create the designs, I float acrylic paints on a gel-like liquid made from carrageenan, an extract from Irish Moss seaweed. Carragenan allows the colors to float on the surface where they can be manipulated with marbling rakes and combs into hundreds of patterns, both traditional and modern. The paper is carefully laid on top of the marbled design and the paint transfers to it. Fresh paint must be laid down for each piece of paper, ensuring that each design is unique. Patterns and colors may be similar, but like snowflakes, no two are exactly the same.

The joy of marbling lies in the beauty of the creations and the surprise every time I lift the paper and see the new sheet. For more information on my marbling, check out my blog at www.nancylangford.com
