You can buy stones through Rembrandt Graphic Arts. They have a website.
Good luck

You could check with Renaissance Graphic Arts in PA - they are a major supplier 
of printmaking materials. If they don't have stones, they probably know where to 
get them in the region.

Another option is the Northport Company.  I bought a large litho stone 
from them a few years ago and it's been great.

Subject: smeary paper?

Hello all,

I bought a sheet of beautiful dark-green hand-marbled paper at a fine  
store in London for 1/2 off because it had some defects (big  
thumbprints, etc.) and just discovered that the ink comes off on my  
hand!! I've already used the paper to bind a blank journal, so I'm  
looking for a quick solution so that the book's recipient doesn't  
have to wash her hands every time she writes in it. I remember  
spraying hair-spray on charcoal drawings to "fix" the charcoal and  
keep it from smearing, would that work here?

And, a separate question prompted by equal parts ignorance and  
indignation- is fixing the ink the last part of the process of hand- 
marbling paper that in this case the paper-makers decided to forego  
since the paper was defective anyway? If so, shouldn't the store have  
told buyers that this one last step hadn't been performed? (I know,  
caveat emptor, but still...)

Thank you,

Annie

Subject: Re: smeary paper?

Anne, I would think that spraying with a good-quality acrylic fixative  
would work.  Don't use hairspray!  Ugh, ugh, ugh!  That stuff is not  
archival and may eventually ruin the paper.  Good acrylic fixative  
brands are Krylon, Golden, Lascaux.  You'll need to read the label to  
see whether they are glossy or matte.  All are available at most art  
stores.  I use Krylon Crystal Clear on my own works on paper.  (I'm a  
painter and I teach drawing and painting.)

Subject: Re: smeary paper?

Oils don't usually smear when used in marbling.   Acrylics and perhaps ink 
often do.
Try some Krylon spray fixative.   Either the "workable" or the "final" 
should do it.   It's available in any art supply store and also at 
Walmart's, usually $5-8.   Good luck.

Subject: Re: smeary paper?

In traditional marbling, the alum in the marble bath functions as a mordant
for the pigment and paper, connecting the pigment to the paper throughout.
But it sounds as though the mordant has failed. A fine art quality spray
fixative (not hair spray) works from the top of the surface down, but it's
the next best solution, I think.
