Notan on Marble Painted Paper

I saw an excellent tutorial on how to create this art form, I simply can not remember where I stumbled upon it. Here are my results from a few sixth graders. 

I had them create a background paper using the classic 'marble painting" (where you roll marbles through some paint drops on your paper)

The students who were absent on painting day adhered their shapes to white paper and marble painted over everything. I like the results better I think.


  1. LOVE the contrast!! Great idea!

  2. I've seen paper notan a bunch of times, but I love the idea of backing it on marbled paper, nice twist! Great blog as well! :)

  3. I love this project! I'll being trying this one next fall, for sure! Thanks for sharing!!
