REDRUM – An Exhibition inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining”


Some Ice-Cream & Red Meat Marbling

Paper marbling is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to marble or other stone, hence the name. In this case, chillin ice cream or maybe bloody meat. The patterns are the result of color floated on either plain water or a viscous solution known as size, and then carefully transferred to a sheet of paper. Part of its appeal is that each print is a unique monotype and can be quite a bitch. (especially at this size 840 x594mm)

The typography was masked out with masking fluid which was followed by the marbling process. Super fun, but i kind of flooded my living room with my not so waterproof water tray.

heres the scene which inspired it.
