Painting On Water

Marbling is a centuries old aqueous surface design method that began in Japan during the 12th century. Traders learned the method and pass their knowledge along to artisans along the trade routes from China, Turkey, India, Europe and eventually America. Each section of the world developed a unique style based on the materials founds in their part of the world. These arts used the art form to make – everything from early forms of wrapping paper, book covers, and wallpapers to official government documents.

My particular style comes from a method developed in 1851. Each design created by painting with acrylics on top of water mixed with seaweed called, carrageenan. The design is made with special tools and paintbrushes. Then image permanently transferred to paper, fabric or wood.
