"Marbling" technique demonstrated

Basically, paint is floated on water, then lifted off with paper.  Wikipedia has details of the procedure, background history, and a gallery of examples.  Looks easy enough that even an artistic klutz like me might be able to do it.

Found at Neatorama.


  1. We used to do this as a childrens' craft - though with rather less dexterity.

  2. I have done this with good success since I was about 7 or 8 years old. I may be able to produce some examples at this late date, but I wouldn't count on it. It was, after all, well over 60 years ago.

  3. Never seen anything like that style before, very cool
