Wooden letters individually hand-marbled in your choice of beautiful, swirling colours.
Perfect as an anniversary gift with both your initials and an ampersand, or to add an elegant, painterly touch for wedding table decoration.
Or you can choose a single initial to add flair to a well-styled shelf, or spell out a name and mount the letters on your wall.
Choose a single initial or spell out a name - you can pick the colour scheme for every letter. Each one will then be individually marbled to order just for you - so every letter is a completely unique work of art. There are several distinct and beautiful colourways to choose from and they all sit nicely with each other, so you can opt for a single colour to match a room, or try out all the colours with a marbled rainbow.
Note that we count an ampersand as a letter too!
Each MDF letter is marbled traditionally in our London studio using durable acrylic paints. Marbling is a fantastic, centuries-old art which involves 'floating' paint on a bath of seaweed-thickened water and manipulating it to create fluid patterns. Once we're happy with the pattern, the wood letters are gently laid onto the bath, picking up the layer of paint and then hung up to dry. Once dry, the letters are finished with a light coat of varnish to seal them and deepen the colours.
Marbling is usually done on paper and used in bookbinding, but we like to experiment with materials and surfaces to keep the craft fresh and modern.
