The No. 40 Peacock Eyes pattern is marbled with cerulean blue, black, metallic gold and silver, on black paper.
Peacock Eyes is made from a Turkish base (the oldest European marbling pattern, dating back to the early 15th century), which is made by tapping colours from a brush onto the marbling bath, creating a random, spotted pattern. The bath is then combed twice vertically, and twice horizontally. Finally, a comb with two sets of teeth is drawn vertically trough the marbling bath in loose wavy lines, creating loops resembling the eyes of a peacocks feathers.
Peacock Eyes is also called Pfauen, Plume de Paon, Queue de Paon, Augen and Bouquet.
