|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe: not listed|
Muira calls this method of pattern building a Double marble.
Though related, a Double marble is not the same process as an 'Overprint' (Wolfe plate XXXVII 180).
The first instance of Double marbling was seen in the 17th century.
A Double marble is created when, after the first desired pattern is completed and the paper dried, the same paper is again treated with Alum and marbled with the second pattern over the top of the first.
In this case, the last (most dominent pattern) is what Wolfe and Schleicher identify as the American pattern.
This pattern is created by starting with a Nonpareil pattern. Then a comb with one set of teeth in whatever width interval is desired is drawn through the bath a single time vertically from the top of the trough towards the bottom.
This paper is a second.
The primary colors for this light grey paper sample are pink, yellow and black.
