Diane Maurer uses linear left brain thinking to clearly explain the process underlying the right brain creative endeavor of marbling. Numerous color images accompanied by step-by-step drawn illustrations (repeated for each pattern) make learning marbling technique while experimenting with one's own inventions uncomplicated.
Directions for making equipment, marbling tray, drain board, wood rakes, bouquet combs, are based on easily obtained household items (T pins, foam, glue). This world class artistic team collaborates with other artists who work on fabric.
One chapter is devoted to projects to make from marbled papers, with introductory techniques on bookbinding.

So, searching Amazon and E Bay I came across this book which is packed with amazing images (full color) and techniques, as well as the tools of the trade and how to make them. We just happened to have a joiner working on our new flooring and some of the materials he was using (6mm ply) was ideal for making the combs and other tools. I purchased a large square container to take up to A2 sized paper, the chemicals required to do a proper job a new box of 10 inks and paper as my daughter wants to make book backers, covers for boxes etc. I'm going to research how to make our own inks as it should work out cheaper. :)
I highly recommend this amazing book. If you are at all arty or love marbling patterns, this book will unlock a whole new perspective on the art.
