Decorative Marled Papers and Ornamental Miniature Books…There is nothing more festive and exciting for the holidays than marbling decorative papers, using brilliant and iridescent colors in beautiful patterns, shimmering on paper. Each piece is a unique work of art. Learn to control the process and produce the marbled papers of your dreams. Then use your papers to create small projects: miniature books, holiday ornaments, messages, cards, boxes and more. Finish with 22K gold and other metallic foils to embellish your creations.
