Red is the most difficult colour to work with in marbling. It needs to be applied to the marbling bath first so that the other colours condense it and in that way it intensifies and should vibrate with energy. It’s the colour I have the most problems with … I end up with a fair number of pink-hued papers and use them for bookbinding projects anyway! Here’s another of my less-than-red books.

Marbled covers, end papers, fly leaves. Suedette spine and corners. Long stitch binding. 110gsm laid paper pages.
