MAKE subscriber RabLabit sent us a link to this video of an artist who “paints on water.” What he’s doing is actually paper marbling, a form of “aqueous surface design.” You’ve certainly seen marbled book or journal end-papers, for instance. Those pattens are created using this process.
The video is a little… meditative, but the results are lovely and it’s a process I’d never actually seen. It makes me want to try it. [Thanks, RabLabit!]
You can find more info on marbling on Galen Berry’s The Art of Marbling website.
