Re: a marbling question



I am most appreciative for all the response I received on this subject.

I have asked "My Marbler" to secure whatever paper from his supplier which
will work.

It seems from the comments here that marbling is just like most any other
part of printmaking etc. "You have to try it and see if it works."

I have used Rives Lightweight for years for text printing. My first thought
was to continue to use a Rives Product for the marblized endpapers.
Therefore the Rives Heavyweight. The common item in most of these responses
is Classic Laid. While I am somewhat familiar with this name and have
printed on that paper. It is a grained paper while Rives is a very soft
ungrained paper much more to my liking. But for endpapers only, as long as I
can maintain the grain, it should work.

Thanks Again,

aj
