By the 1890’s, the art of marbling was considered quaint and old-fashioned. Soon enough, a few of the remaining marblers started publishing their century old family marbling methods and formulas in order to preserve them, instead of risk losing the art of marbling forever. Now, one hundred years later, there are more practitioners of this ancient art than ever before in history.
