On a trip to the South of France this summer, we met Claire in her studio. See our website HERE for more information.
This lucky selection of Canson & Hahnemuhle Ingres Paper sits on Claire’s shelves… waiting to be transformed into vivid, dynamic & sensational marbled papers!Papers are created on a variety of colored backgrounds, which create tonal differences and enhance each sheet.
Claire is entirely self-taught, and each day is a new exploration for her. She is constantly experimenting with new techniques & methods, and studying various marbling styles along the way.
To the left, a sheet of Ingres paper is carefully placed on the finished design.
She uses mainly Oil Paints, which give each sheet a distinct look and feel.
After the sheet is placed, it is removed & rinsed (see images below). Finally, once a sheet is done, Claire waxes the surface to enhance its colors and to facilitate its use.
The final result is a masterful monoprint or sheet of marbled paper that photographs just don’t seem to do justice!
They are selling fast, so get your hands on a sheet now, before they’re all gone!We are currently assembling a permanent line of papers with Claire. We expect production to begin immediately, and they will be listed on our website as soon as they arrive!Which is your favorite?
