Carrageenan is a seaweed extract and is used to make the size bath. This is the instant, "no-cook" variety and can be easily made in a blender. Carrageenan gives a size bath superior to any other in marbling, and was developed for use by the "father" of modern marbling, Josef Halfer at the turn of the century.
Gives the finest lines possible foreither water-based or acrylic marbling. Due to recent large price rise in carrageenan we are having to raise the price, but will now also offer half pound packs for your convenience in case you don't need a whole pound.
$30.00 per 1/2 lb. $60.00 for 1 lb. Shipping per Pound Plus Shipping
Alum is a white crystaline powder, which is dissolved in hot water and sponged onto paper before marbling. Fabrics also need to be dipped into an alum solution prior to marbling. Alum is a "mordant", an agent which binds the colors to the item being marbled.
$10.00 per pound, Plus Shipping
Ox-gall is the fluid found in the gall bladder of a bovine animal such as an ox or cow. It is used to
disperse the water-based marbling colors, and enables them to float and remain separate from one another on the surface of the size. A little goes a long way.
2oz. bottle $12.00
TOOLS OF THE TRADE
TROUGHS - Made of durable, lightweight plastic with a waste area. Small & Large size. We are no longer carrying them, but you can order directly from Colophon Book Arts Supply at https://www.colophonbookarts.com/
RAKES & COMBS - Also order to fit the troughs from Colophon at https://www.colophonbookarts.com/ But you can also make many of your own tools!
PAPERS FOR MARBLING
The current paper I recommend, is an unbuffered bond. Too much calcium carbonate buffer can neutralize your alum, and make your paints run off not matter how much alum you apply. You can order Rennaissance Paper, which is acid free, yet not buffered from Light Impressions Direct at http://www.lightimpressionsdirect.com/

ORDERING INFORMATION - MARBLED PAPERS
THE PATTERNS - Basic patterns can be seen in the above samplings. Many variations are possible though. If you have any other ideas or need an early paper duplicated feel free to inquire.
CONSISTENCY - All the sheets are individually hand-marbled, so there are slight differences from sheet to sheet of the same design. This is actually a sign of their authenticity. It is, however, possible to match large amounts of paper very closely for edition runs.
COLORS - The colors are ground in the studio. They are formulated to give most traditional look possible. It is best to order papers that need to match closely at the same time, as there may be minor "dye-lot" differences from batch to batch.
PAPER - We are using currently a 19 X 25 Short Grain paper.
CUSTOM ORDERS - The sheets are made in sets of four, so there is a minimum of four of any custom paper, or in multiples of four (4,8,12,etc.). Allow 2-3 weeks for custom orders, with very large orders possibly taking a bit longer. Custom orders are not exchangeable. Sample sheets will be billed per sheet, plus mailing and tube costs. For custom orders there is a minimum of 20 matching sheets.
STOCK ORDERS - We maintain a large backup stock, always ready for immediate shipment. It is not possible to stock all designs in all color themes, but generally there is something close to what you need on the shelf. There is no minimum for stock orders.
TERMS - Please enclose payment with order, or you may use a credit card via Paypal, online or over the phone. ALL ORDERS MUST BE PAID FOR PRIOR TO SHIPPING. We will not do billing.
OBTAINING SAMPLES - I will be happy to stuff an envelope with random cuttings at no cost. If you need a custom made sample, I need to explain, this is a two day and many hour job. I need to set up the day ahead. Paints need to be custom made. It can take many tries to get close to what you want, plus sometimes, numerous mailing of sheets to the customer for approval. I am willing to do this, but there will be a per sheet charge, plus a $55 set up fee. plus shipping costs. To make ONE sample sheet, I can easily spend three or more hours between preparation time and marbling time, and use about $30 or more in materials. This is not refundable or returnable should the customer decide not to order after samples are created..
