Joan Ajala, Paper Marbler

Joan’s individual papers are used extensively by professional and hobby  bookbinders in Australia and the U.S.A.  Her marbled cards are sold in Australian galleries and bookshops.

Marbling workshops, using non-toxic paints and materials, are available for groups, such as calligraphers and bookbinders, or individuals.

As no two pieces of marbling are identical, papers will be close to, but not identical to the samples shown. Slight variations in colour and patterning are part of the process and allure of marbling.  Also, the time taken to complete an order will vary widely due to the handmade nature of the work.

Most colours are interchangeable, allowing you to choose a pattern and colour that appeals.  Special requests are also welcome.

Papers can be copied as far as this is possible. A piece of the old marbled paper is needed for this.
