~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Use marbled paper in any project for which you’d use decorated paper. Bookmarks, note cards, origami, scrapbooking, jewelry and box making, etc. Cut into small pieces, it makes delicious JOURNAL embellishments. Artists like marbled paper for use in collage.

Marbling is done by floating dye or paint on the surface of water in a tank, and lowering a sheet of paper or fabric from above, making a unique, one-of-a-kind contact print. Tools may also be used to arrange the color into patterns before the print is made. Only one print can be made from each painted design. Each piece is completely original! There is no mass production, no photography and no digital treatment involved!!

All of my marbled products are made by myself and my teenage daughter Anna. An artist by nature and formal training, I enjoy the process of combining and manipulating color. With marbling, the colors, patterns, and working techniques are endless and never boring. Every marbling session is an adventure! Anna and I make marbled paper for the sheer pleasure and joy of creating beautiful things. We want others to enjoy our work for that same reason!

• Hand-dyed Lokta papers are rarely perfectly squared. They have two natural deckled edges and 2 torn edges. I do not trim the edges, allowing them to retain their slightly ragged appearance.

• Papers are shipped flat or rolled. I won’t fold them unless you ask me to, in order to sometimes save on shipping costs.

• Paper is hand-made, medium-weight Lokta from Nepal. Texture is dimpled and rumpled—sort of like leather. The papers do not lie perfectly flat after my subjecting them to water. Deceivingly durable, Lokta resists tearing.

• All non-toxic and acid-free materials.

• Backside is bare paper with sometimes a hand-written title and the artist’s signature (Anna’s or mine) in erasable pencil, plus our stamped contact information at bottom center.

• As with any humanly-marbled effort, some imperfections are visible on the front of the work, and stray paint can appear on the back of the paper. This is the nature of hand-made work. Though I offer only my better marbled papers, Anna and I are indeed…human.

• Patterns or colors don’t match your individual preference? Please look at the other sheets in the shop, or contact me with a special request. If I have what you want or can make it, I’ll offer it to you as a reserved listing.

• Feel free to contact me with any questions – I’m very interested in hearing from you.
