Trend Alert: Marbleized

I remember marbleizing paper as a child in art class–back when they taught art in schools :(. It was like magic to me, swirling around the colors in a big vat and having the patterns stick the paper. In fact, the memory of it makes me want to marbleize some more. I came across these things that reminded me of marbleizing and, well, maybe it’s nostalgia, but I’d qualify these things as being ’80′s in a good way, yes?

  1. great inspiration, Justina. I remember making a brooch for my mum in school when I was little – it has the same effect and she still wears it:-)

  2. do they not teach art in school anymore??!!!??

  3. @Nicole Due to budget cuts public schools in the US mostly have no art classes :(
