Today I did a demo on marbling with oil paint, turps, pastel and nail varnish..
A real pongy mix of stuff.
Yers, I have tried the seaweed route and never got that good results , so...
I work fast to keep the pong down a bit.
I marble onto, clean paper, old maps, old books,tatty old prints I`ve discarded, old comics....anything I don`t have to pay for I suppose.
works for me.
A friend was mono-printing at the same time.
Sweater sleeves, almost as good as a roller.
And a young boy (10 yrs) produced his first print..
firing went well, just waiting for it to stop raining so I can photograph them..
