Every card in this gorgeous gift set is an original work of art, boasting a one-of-a-kind piece of hand-marbled paper. The set contains an assortment of unique colors and patterns, many in the tradition of the ancient marblers, and some displaying more contemporary expressions. For all, papers are treated and pressed, paints are floated on an aqueous bath of size, and colors are swirled, combed, or raked to kaleidoscopic effects. Then a single print is made of each design. An assortment of eight such prints are within this box, each mounted to a shimmering metallic paper border. The cards are A-2 size (4.25 by 5.5 inches) and their matching European-style, deep-V-flap envelopes are crafted of fine white linen and nestled in colorful tissue with a Brief History of Marbling information card and wrapped in ribbon, ready to give. Each box contains a card that matches the cover of the box and an assortment of other patterns and colors.
I can't seem to create these cards fast enough, and I'm learning why: they are the perfect gift for a wide variety of tricky-to-buy-for people: for parents, siblings, or grown kids...teachers, postal carriers, friends-at-work... those who make art, write letters, or just love color... here is a gift that is not only gorgeous and unusual, but practical. Your loved ones receive a gift of useful artwork, and you receive the satisfaction of giving high-quality, handmade gifts while supporting a small business!
