The Art of Book Making: Open House NY

October 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

During Rufus King’s life, books were very precious, and Rufus’ huge collection of almost 4000 books was very important to him. Many of those books were decorated with something called “paper marbling” which created mesmerizing swirl patterns on covers and cover pages. Using common household items, we will simulate the historic process of paper marbling and use it to make stationary, bookmarks, or just beautiful works of art! Also enjoy a live tour of Rufus King’s library with a question and answer session!

Participants will need:
Shaving cream (foaming, non-gel type) OR whipped cream (from a tub or can)
Food coloring OR acrylic paint OR tempera paint
Paper of your choice
Pencil OR popsicle stick OR fork
A piece of smooth, stiff cardboard/paper (like a business card or piece of a box)
