Short description

The mathematical fascination with ink marbling is that while rakings across the tank stretch and deform the ink boundaries, they do not break or change the topology of the surface. With mechanical guides, a raking can be undone by reversing the motion of the rake to its original position. Raking is thus a physical manifestation of a homeomorphism, a continuous function between topological spaces (in this case between a topological space and itself) that has a continuous inverse function.

The package comes with 15 predefined basic actions like:

  • drop
  • line-drops
  • serpentine-drops
  • coil-drops
  • normal-drops
  • uniform-drops
  • concentric-rings
  • rake
  • stylus
  • stir
  • vortex
  • jiggle
  • wriggle
  • shift
  • turn

Also some spray-actions (post-marble actions) like:

  • normal-spray
  • uniform-spray

Also a shadings option to generate shading effects (post-marble actions)

With these commands one can create quite artistic marble-like patterns following the rules of fluid mechanics.
