In my Introduction to Paper Marbling eCourse, I emphasize purpose over perfection because, well, perfection is not possible in marbling. And when you let go of expectations, that’s when the good stuff happens.
So yeah, sometimes we miss the mark. Or the color is off. Or we’re still learning a new technique. When it comes to marbling, even those so called boo-boos are stunning. But they can also take on another life. And it’s found in something called the “overmarble.”
I teach the overmarble technique in my class because it opens up endless possibilities to add texture, movement, and depth to a piece…and it also can cover up the boo-boos that no one else sees but is driving us up the wall.
Yeah, I get it. I’ve been there.
So let’s strive for purpose together while at the same time have fun playing with our boo-boos. Early bird registration for Clouds on Water ends soon. Register by Thursday, April 30 and save $80.
