Marbling is a process of dropping paint on a fluid carageenan surface, drawing with stylus, rake, and comb, then laying down a treated paper to transfer the design. We will review traditional patterns and invent new ones to fully explore the opportunities of the floating paint. We will work in acrylic to open up the possibility of marbling over paste or painted paper. Marbling is visually interesting at every step, providing a unique artmaking experience.

Val Wells has exhibited albums and journals which feature her original marbled papers at craft fairs throughout the Northeast. She has studied bookbinding and marbling since 1985, completing a BA in book arts. She is currently studying occupational therapy in a graduate program.
