IRIS NEVINS HAND MARBLED PAPER
FINE QUALITY TRADITIONAL STYLE HAND-MARBLED PAPERS SINCE 1978. SEE CATALOG LINK BELOW OF MARBLED PAPERS AND WATERCOLOR & ACRYLIC MARBLING COLORS, TOOLS AND INSTRUCTION MANUALS
Thank you for visiting! I have dedicated over two decades of my life (since 1978) to marbling. My specialty is the reproduction of early marbled papers, particularly the ones from about 1800 - 1860. I consider this period to be the high point in the long history of marbling, just prior to the use of marbling machines during the Victorian era. To achieve these designs and colors, I make my own marbling colors using, where possible, the same pigments used during the period (some pigments no longer exist, the supplies having been used up, or were found to be too dangerous for use, such as orpiment, a yellow that is arsenic based). The papers, however, are not only limited to early designs. I do extensive work for small presses, decorators, framers and other craftspeople and will design and execute a paper of their choosing. Large orders are no problem, and paper prices are wholesale.
NOTE NEW PRICES AS OF 4/1/11 in catalog section. ALSO... as many know shipping rates are high, so are packaging rates. While we have no control over that, we'd like to offer a "giveback" to make this economy less painful! On orders of 12 or more sheets of marbled paper we would like to offer you either one Surprise GIFT sheet OR two surprise slightly imperfect seconds sheets (until the 2nds run out that is!). Our choice, but we will accept guidelines! Please remind us when you order. If any of us forgets (we are all so frazzled and busy!) they will go with your next order, as shipping is high these days.

These papers are representative of the styles that can be made. It would be impossible to show everything because I make many thousands of different papers, once the possibilities of pattern and color are multiplied. There is no particular "set stock". It is a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but it adds up to many hundreds of papers on the shelf, ready for immediate shipment. Custom orders can be made, as well, to your specifications. These samplings are only meant to be a guideline and to show some basic traditional marbling patterns. They can be made in any other color theme you wish.
