Marbling a bouqet pattern

I just spent a few days doing some marbling so I took some pictures of the different steps for making the bouquet pattern - which is one of my favorite patterns when it turns out well. There are actually four different patterns created in the process. These photos are taken of the paint floating on the carageenan size, so the colours look strange, but hopefully you can get an idea of what's happening. Click on the pictures to see them larger.

First, the stone pattern.


Then a gel git (or git gel... the jury is out on which is the best way to say that).


Then it becomes a Nonpareil.


And finally the nonpareil is transformed into the bouquet.


Here it is, printed and rinsed and drying in the sink.


And after it has dried completely.


All for the love of a single sheet of paper!
