Just realized I have tons of pictures from the past week that I never posted. Last Wednesday when some of our friends stayed home from school because of bad weather, I took advantage of the small classes to do some shaving cream marbling (turns out I had the perfect amount of shaving cream). We were too excited about the finished products for me to get pictures, but look how much fun the process was! We used watercolors I made from recycled markers-bonus!!

The making of the Amelia earrings. In size: Magna. In colour: Aged Alabaster. 🏛 Ancient world inspired jewellery? How are these hand-marbled maple wood hoops inspired by the ancients? 👀 Well... Marbling is an ancient-rooted art. With a name borrowed from marble stone, which was prized in the classical world, even before Augustus “found Rome brick and left it marble”. Marbling was in part invented to imitate the natural veining of marble stone. However, the Japanese independently invented Suminagashi in the 12th century, where they would float black sumi ink on water to create rippled rings. The precious papers they created would be handed down within families & the craft was restricted to the royal household for many centuries. Turkish marbling, called Ebru, emerged in the 15th century & merchants took their marbled papers to sell in Italy & then across Europe. Those who mastered marbling kept their trade very secretive & the art of marbling was shrouded in much mystery until the 19th century. Marbling was was popularly used by the Victorians to decorate book end papers & then it received a revival in the 1970s. There we have it! A brief history of marbling. 〰️ I’ve taken this freeform & historically informed art form my previous project to create a transitional collection into the new. 〰️#papermarbling#marbling#marble#marbled#learn#history#suminagashi#ink#minimal#comingsoon#theameliaearrings#roobannister
I thought I'd try that trendy marble nail polish trick - but on paper, and for today's "print". But it didn't turn out so well which makes me think that I'm probably doing it wrong 😅
Good thing I wasn't trying on my nails!
