Suminagashi Paper

Suminagashi Paper

Suminagashi is the Japanese minimalist version of paper marbling. It is about 90% technique and 10% control. It entails floating ink upon water, swirling the water to distort the color bands into interesting designs and laying absorbent paper on the water surface. Removing the paper lifts the design.
