discover the fascinating decorative paper technique known as marbling. Thinned paints are floated on a thickened bath, then combed or raked into traditional or contemporary patterns. The resulting monoprint is both beautiful and useful. Vivid color and intriguing designs are hallmarks of this magical process. Patterns may be duplicated or editioned easily and the process requires no specialized tools or materials. There’s a little science but much room for creativity and experimentation.

steve pittelkow is a decorative paper artist and bookbinder living in Minneapolis. He has taught at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Penland School of Craft and the University of Georgia Cortona, Italy program. His papers are in collections and artists’ books in U.S. and Europe.
