It's always an amazing thing to stumble on entirely new (yet evidently ancient) artistic techniques. Top Men had never heard of Marbling except as it applies to a nice juicy ribeye. We're assuming that the majority of the teeming masses haven't either, so we're bringing you up to speed with this collection of movies.

These movies demonstrate the primary marbling technique of floating inks or paints on water. The resulting images can be "printed" by laying a sheet of paper on the surface.

I've done that, many ages ago in school. It was lots of fun :)

Hal Iggulden's The Dangerous Book for Boys has a whole project on how to marble paper.

Heckfar! I used to be able to buy
marbled t-shirts out in the parking lot of Grateful Dead concerts back in the late 80's.
