Old arts are definitely the most charming ones :) I hope they still teach this and other things, not only computers...

I was a paper marbler for a year (due to a snotr video 3 years ago). The only professional one in my country. A truly great thing. Although I had to quit, because I couldn't make any money with it. I couldn't sell a paper like that even for 5 Euros (which is by far a fair price). I love the art thought. Ah.. And I'm the only one in the world who knows how to do it on glass (as far as I know, of course). An interesting video. Where did you, submitter, get it? I searched the whole Internet in all the languages I could think of to find something about marbling, and libraries and private correspondence, and blog archives, when I was learning about it, and I didn't come across this one.

By the way. If anybody is interested in some great marbling patter photos -
