So most of these are the before (on left) and afters on right. I always use a printed or colored piece of fabric. I do a lot of "veining" when I marble allowing much of the original fabric to show through. The one on top was already busy but I do like the additional marbling on top.
This one was marbled (on left) over a hand dyed fabric...pretty but wanted to try more so I alummed it again and over-marbled it with blue veining.
This is one of the Stonehenge fabrics which I wanted to add a little more interest to. I think it needs to be marbled again. I was most excited about the grays, but they turned out to be my least favorite when completed.
The piece on the left had been marbled years ago...pretty but a little boring. I marbled over it with a dark blue or black to create more interest...like it better now.
These are some trees I did with silk screens at one of our FJ meetings...decided to try some marbling over it...done in grays and blues.
This piece of fabric was an old piece I had "shiboried" and decided it needed something else. I did some very light veining over the top.
I never cared for this piece which was shiboried with wall plates soooooo I marbled on top...still not crazy about it...Well you can't win them all....right !!
These are the pieces I was most interested in....the Stonehenge. You can see in the top left picture, the patterning as it lay on the marbling base. I used Createx air brush colors in metallic gold and black. I never use black straight...always mix it with something like dark blue or brown...just to soften it a tad. I was happy with the results.
Thes next 4 pieces are Stonehenge which were marbled with the patterning on the left. I am happy with the results...especially the dark blue. As I work with this fabric...new ideas come to mind like adding a pop of color using a paint stick, stitching with metallic thread etc..... I've done several and will share next time around...
