      I've been getting ready for a show and haven't been online for a few days.  Glad you went ahead and started experimenting with the tea tree oil and water solution.  Like other surfactants you can make it stronger or weaker according to need.  When I start experimenting I start with a 1/4 cup of water, add a drop, test, drop and test until I get the spread I want.  I usually keep a stronger and weaker concentration to use as needed.  

      Don Guyot wrote a how to book about suminagashi many years ago.  Nancy Morain (sp?) at Colophon Book Arts may still carry copies.  Of course there is some interesting info online.

      TEA TREE OIL  you use in water ?

      As Sue responded if you are going to do more authentic suminagashi you can use sumi calligraphy ink on plain water with sumi brushes.  Other surfactants that will work are tea tree oil in water.
