This website showcases my handcrafted marbled papers and the bookbinding products I make with them.
Each handcrafted paper is unique and is created in a graphic process which involves floating paint on water thickened with an added agent.
There are many techniques and recipes for paper marbling, traditional and new.
After a lot of experimenting with different materials, I prefer using high quality oil paints on a basis of ‚carragheen‘-moss.
Following a recipe which was handed down to me in a book by my great-grandfather, who was a traditional handicraft bookbinder, I have been following a family tradition for over 30 years now, which developed into a genuine passion.
