|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled paper, Gold vein Overprinted on Turkish pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Miura: Gold vein Overprinted over Turkish pattern.|
Though related in terms of end appearance, an 'overprint' is not the same process as 'Double marble' (Miura pgs 120-121). A double marble is created when a single paper has been through the marbling process twice where both patterns are on top of one another.
An overprint is created when a paper, already marbled, is then printed on top of with another pattern using a lithographic process.
This pattern is created by first completing a Turkish pattern. Then after that paper has been dried, the marbled side would be printed over with a Gold vein pattern (Italian pattern using metallic ink) using a lithographic process.
The primary colors for this example are dark, medium and light pink, dark and light blue, brown and gold.
