Antique French Document Ghost Image

Product Description:

In marbling, each time you lay paint on the water, you are only able to get one print from it. When you lift the paper off the water, there is residual paint left behind that creates its own unique and intricate patterns. Capturing this remaining paint on paper is known as a "ghost print".

This is a ghost print is captured on an antique French document. We love how it combines history, calligraphic arts, and marbled art. This is a one-of-a-kind piece that will look beautiful framed for display.

Additional Information:

  • Original hand marbled designs: If you are purchasing multiples of one sheet please note that they will be similar but not identical. Due to the hand marbled process, no two are exactly the same.
  • Our maker's mark logo is stamped on the reverse side of each full and half size sheet identifying it as an authentic piece hand marbled in our studio. There may also be pencil or pen marks on the reverse side identifying which side we should marble. After being marbled, sheets are typically numbered on the back in pencil noting the paper size and style number. This information is not visible from the front of the paper. These characteristics are indicative of an authentic original piece of hand marbled paper. We feel that these add to the artisan quality of the product and the unique charm of the handmade process.
  • Due to the wet nature of the marbling process there may be traces of paint on the reverse side. This characteristic is also indicative of an authentic original piece of hand marbled paper that adds to the artisan quality and the unique charm of the handmade process.
