The process of marbling fabric is one that I hope to explore.
As you may know, we carry Marbled Fabrics created by Marjorie Lee Bevis. Her website provides information about her process and the history of marbled. We have 10 different packs in specific colors, e.g., reds, oranges, greens, blues, lights, darks, etc.
Each pack contains 10 pieces of marbled cotton, each approximately 9″ x 10″. Below are some examples of her fabric packs which are perfect for your quilts, crafts, mixed media, art, etc:
- On You-Tube: Blick Art Materials Presents: Marbling Fabric and Paper with Jacquard Marbling Kit.
- In the new issue (Aug./Sept.2011) of Quilting Arts Magazine, there is an article called “Layered Marbling – A multicolored exploration in surface design” by Jo Fitsell. If you are interested in this process, you must see her website.
- This Creative Catalyst Productions DVD by artist, Cheng-Khee Chee, Marbleizing and Monoprinting Techniques is amazing. He has his own unique process.
