1235Re: [Marbling] Beginning with suminagashi?
- Jul 25, 2002Hello All,
You beat me to it. Iwas going to respond that suminagashi using Boku Undo
dyes is the way to go! It is easy and foolproof if you follow the
instructions using one drop of photoflo to adjust a teaspoon of color and
stir well each time you apply the color. Forget the instructions in the box
of Boku Undo colors. I sell all the supplies for suminagashi and use and
recommend Loew-Cornell Oriental rice paper. It is $13.75 for forty-eight
12X18sheets. Not bad, really...... Charcoal papers and unsized HMP also
usually work well. Mohawk Superfine (more expensive)is also great. Go to my
website www.dianemaurer.com to see examples of suminagashi which looks very
little like traditional marbling but is beautiful in its own right --
especially the double-image designs. I'll be demonstrating suminagashi at the
IMG if you get a chance to stop by. I'd be happy to e-mail an instruction
sheet to anyone interested.
