Studio Sunday

Today’s Studio Sunday is a throwback to a couple of weeks ago when I took a wonderful paper marbling class over at Paperhouse Studio with the talented Liam Blackburn. Last week I promised to continue with the series of posts about the Bradel Binding I was working on (last week was sewn headbands).  I’m so thrilled to be able to use paper I marbled myself as the covers.  This is what the vat looks like just before dipping the paper in.  The washed-out design (with terrible ceiling reflections) is actually the paint sitting on top of the fluid.  We had about 5 minutes to perfect our designs before the paint started falling into the vat, making it impossible to pick up on the paper.  While this wasn’t my favourite design, I did learn a lot from each technique and can’t wait to try it again!
