Review:

The ancient art of marbling--long confined to the endpapers of leather-bound books--is experiencing renewed interest among today's crafters. This nicely presented book covers all the basics of marbling paper and fabric, from making your own tools to working with various types of paints to setting up your workspace. The heart of the book explains the specifics of how to create seven basic marbling patterns and how to troubleshoot technical problems, plus ways to achieve seven specialty techniques, including marbling dimensional objects. The concluding section offers ideas for several projects incorporating marbling, as well as a brief explanation about going into business selling your marbled products.

From Booklist:

The fifteenth-century Persians called marbling "cloud art." Its ethereal nickname comes as no surprise, since marbling was used primarily for decorating the flyleaves of important books. Now there are other purposes for this elegant craft, and practitioner Medeiros explores the practicalities as well as the how-to's of marbling. Everything is figured for a restricted budget; she warns about purchasing expensive whisks, for example, when bound-together broom straws will suffice. Even more impressive is her arsenal of techniques and suggestions; the step-by-step photographs and the remedies for common problems make both standard and special techniques easy to complete. Barbara Jacobs
