Marbling Wall Art

with Sally Power
Saturday, November 27; 10am–4pm CT

Welcome back to our studios! Go beyond patterns and explore how to set your marbling off as a figure with a background. These pictures are suitable for framing as wall art and could be used for binding projects as well. This class draws on techniques from Turkish marbling (Ebru) but with an American twist.

Methods include: how to make the colors more intense, learning to draw/paint by managing the paint on the surface, and using both a stylus and combs to create patterns. It is recommended that participants take Introduction to Marbling or have some other marbling experience before registering for this workshop.
