Summary

The Art of Paint Marbling takes you through all the tools, techniques, and tips you need to create your own marbled artwork.

*2022 Creative Book Awards winner for Best Drawing & Painting Book*

Closely following the successful The Art of Paint Pouring and its follow-up, The Art of Paint Pouring: Swipe, Swirl & SpinThe Art of Paint Marbling features a similarly easy-to-follow format and appealing aesthetic.

Paint marbling is a contemporary technique with a long history. What started hundreds of years ago has evolved into a fun, modern art form that’s popular on YouTube and has been hailed as a trend by The New York Times.

Nowadays, paint marbling uses a base of thickened water, onto which paint is poured and then swirled. Dipping paper directly into the paint creates beautiful, abstract art that’s easy to do at home using minimal, affordable supplies.

Using step-by-step projects with thorough instructions, artists can use a variety of techniques to manipulate colored paint into intricate patterns and create marbled artwork on a variety of surfaces, including paper, cloth, and wood panels.

Large, beautiful, and colorful photos accompany all of the projects and techniques. Paint marbling serves as a fun hobby for beginners, a new art form for more advanced artists looking for alternative techniques, and a family activity perfect for artists young and old.

With The Art of Paint Marbling, you can learn to use paper, paint, and water to create your own on-trend artwork!
