Techniques

Marbling is a technique of aqueous surface design. This essentially means you can create a pattern by dropping paint onto a liquid surface. Well not any liquid surface, but one of Carageenan or Methocel. 

You have probably seen marbled paper lining your grandparent’s vintage books. However, my work looks a bit different. My interest in the marbling technique is its ability to let you capture the moment. My curiosity is intrigued by what happens when you leave the marbling tray to itself. Maybe you made a 'classic' print and there are some paint residuales on the surface. How long does it take 'time' to randomly shape a beautiful pattern? Sometimes i also add fresh drops of paint onto a dirty tray to see how the new and the old colors interacts.

If you see some of these prints hanging on your walls at home, do jump over to the shop and check out the stock.
