Marbling - Paper marbling


Marbling, also known as paper marbling or marbled paper, is a decorative art technique where patterns resembling the veins and textures of marble are created on paper or fabric. This is achieved by floating pigments or inks on a liquid surface, often made of water or a viscous solution, and then transferring the resulting design onto the desired material. Artists manipulate the floating pigments to create various patterns, and the design is captured when the material is carefully pressed onto the surface of the liquid.

Marbling can produce a wide range of intricate and colorful designs, making it popular for creating unique book covers, stationary, and artistic pieces. The technique has historical roots and has been practiced in various cultures over the centuries.
