Water marbling is the process of floating paint on the surface of a thickened liquid, swirling it into unique patterns and then transferring that dye onto paper or textiles. It's a centuries-old technique that most commonly was used to make colorful endpapers in old books. Susan Liechty shows us how she employs the process to make beautifully marbled silk scarves that are one-of-a-kind
