Thanks to Polly and Brad for contacting me after having seen other people making marbled paper on my website – and thanks to Tina for rearranging my website so it is easy to Blog as often as I like, – and thus for Polly and Brad to find the activity they were looking for!

We all got together this morning with Letizia at Alberto Cozzi to make marbled marks on paper – Florentine style!

The process involves a lot of concentration as can be seen by these expressions below

So many choices of colours

Today we found that the temperature and humidity really does affect the spread of the paint and the colour that fixes itself to the paper – not adversely but it is different!

Everyone made two sheets of paper – creating arches, freestyle images and turkey tails.

From their expressions when the paper emerged from the bath of glue I think everyone was pretty happy with their efforts!! Polly’s comment was OMG!!

Polly has an OMG moment

Tina and Letizia hold up the final sheet of paper from today’s session – very pale and very pretty!
