Having developed this versatile toolkit for mathematical ink-marbling, it is time to create some high-resolution works.

First is a contour-rendered design from a simple ink-drop pattern using linear and circular tine strokes. Here is an eightfold reduction of Nautilus-I which is linked to a full-scale detail from the work.

Nautilus-II is a raster-rendered from the same pattern but with circular shadings similar to the straight shadings described in Transfer Effects. This eightfold reduction is linked to a full-scale detail of the same region as above.

Histogram-equalizing the Nautilus-II image enhances its apparent depth.


Iteratively tracing a stylus diagonally upward from alternate sides results in a design which looks like threads from many sources being drawn together to form yarn (visible slightly right of the center). Here is an eightfold reduction of "Braid" which is linked to a full-scale detail.
