Marbling consists of laying a sheet of paper onto a layer of ink suspended on a bath of Carrageenan (Irish seaweed moss). Once there is a desired design created with water-based inks on the bed of Carrageenan, a print is pulled. This process is akin to Mono printing. Although we try to make each print as perfect as possible, the water has a balance we have to consider. There are slight imperfections in the marbled paper which is part of the process of marbling.
