Marbling experience helpful but not required
Recreate authentic marbling patterns of the 1800s using historic techniques, lost over time, and rediscovered through research. Make paints from pigments, self-made binders, and beeswax glazing past which can be burnished to a polished, durable finish. Learn to manage paint additives to create and intermingle beautiful Shell, Stormont, Glouster, Italian Vein, and Tiger Eye patterns. Marvel as nineteenth century techniques meet twentieth century materials for endless possibilities!
Regina and Dan St. John are Chena River Marblers. They specialize in book edge-marbling, miniature marbling, custom marbled papers, and teaching marbling workshops around the country. Deeply influenced by historic marbling traditions all over the world, Chena River Marblers’ work encompasses much of the past while incorporating a twenty-first century twist to pattern, color, and technique.
