Marbled Paper

Paper marbling is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to smooth marble or other stone. The patterns are the result of color floated on either plain water or a viscous solution known as size, and then carefully transferred to an absorbent surface, such as paper or fabric.

Through several centuries, people have applied marbled paper to a variety of surfaces. It is often employed as a writing surface for calligraphy, and especially book covers and endpapers in bookbinding and stationery. Part of its appeal is that each paper is a unique monoprint .

Here you will find marbled paper by one of the longest established producers of marbled paper; Kete Brett of Payhembury Marbled Paper. A large range of papers which should satisfy the most ardent book restorer.

Also we now have a range of marbled paper by Jemma Lewis. Jemma learnt her skills from the late Ann Muir.
