Marbling workshop

At Friday’s meeting of the Halifax Art Society, Lynda Thomas and Philip Hicken ran an art marbling workshop. The first part started with Lynda floating acrylic paint on a liquid base. After swirling the paint around, paper was floated onto the surface. When the paper was lifted, the surface of the paper was covered in a beautiful swirl of colour. The paper was then put aside to dry.

Now it was Philip’s turn. He explained how to make use of this lovely art work. Philip had made cut out cards of swans, behind which you put the marbling to create an attractive greetings card. He gave us further advice on how to make use of the marbling work that we had created.

On the 26th January our president Paul Talbot- Greaves will demonstrate ‘Landscapes in Acrylic’. Everybody in the All-Saints-Hall will be able to watch him working, as Paul will be using his magnifying equipment.
