|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled paper, Stormont on Turkish pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Miura: Stormont on Turkish|
This pattern is created starting with a Turkish base. Then one or more colors would then be mixed with a dispersant, such as turpentine, and thrown onto the bath. These dispersant-mixed colors will appear to be covered with tiny holes. When making this pattern you must work faster than usual to pull the marble because the turpentine will evaporate, closing up this lacy network of holes.
The primary colors for this example are green, blue, red and yellow.
