Artist Roberta E. Laine will show you how to prepare the special carrageenan (thickened water) bath, how to alum coat your papers, and how to mix your liquid acrylic pigments. You will marble in a medium-size tray on a variety of papers. You will learn classic patterns, how to create color harmonies, then you will be free to experiment on your own.
