We started with simple rings being deposited with big round brushes. We progressed to multiple rings, blowing on rings to create distortion and finally overprints (on maps and previously marbled papers). We took a lot of paper home with us.
If you would like to try this ancient art form, you can get started with a couple large brushes, a cookie sheet with sides and Bo-Ku Undo dye set of six colors available at both Dick Blick and Amazon ($13-18).
|All of the tables were gathered around Jackie's workstation on the left. We had varying sizes of trays for the inks|

And now our samples
|These two are overprints. On the left, it is on a map and on the right is an overprint on another marbling page.|
