    Love the marbling. What is laid paper?

    • Thanks, Wendy. Look forward to you marbling … you’ll love it.
      Laid paper has a raised grid pattern that gives a textured surface on one side of the sheet. Narrow-spaced lines (called laid lines) run parallel to the sheet edge with wider-spaced lines at 90 degrees to them. The wider-spaced lines also create a watermark that can be seen when held up to the light.

  2. I did some marbling when I was a kid. My aim wasn’t very good, though. That’s how I lost all my marbles… : P

    Beautiful work. Is there anything you guys can’t</i) do??

    • The Greeks know all about losing their marbles and they thought it was to do with Elgin when it’s really to do with aim!

      Thank you, Mark, as always you’re too kind with your grin-inducing comments … hang on, must just retrieve our egos, “Get back here, you two. And don’t give us that line about reality … we’ve heard it before!”
