Koloman Moser, marbled paper technique, 1904. Vienna, via Leopoldmuseum

For this age-old process a shallow tray is filled with oil paints which are then made into patterns or various motifs using a needle or marbling comb. Subsequently, a piece of paper is dipped into the tray to absorb the paint. These papers were either used as endpapers or covers for books, or as autonomous artworks.
