The ancient art of paper marbling is enjoying a revival, and contemporary artist Lucy McGrath shares her passion for the craft that is her specialty. Using step-by-step instructions, stunning photographs, and some of the most beautiful paper marbling today, McGrath guides beginners on a creative journey. She discusses everything from preparation and equipment (complete with paint recipes), to planning your design, applying paint, and creating a range of patterns—including swirls, nonpareil, hearts, flowers, and ebru (painting on water). As marblers’ skills grow, they can try out more complex techniques such as marbling onto three-dimensional items. And, for inspiration, there’s a selection of projects featuring bookbinding, origami, and collage.
