Re: [Marbling] re: My New Web Site
- Milena is right in her comments and I thank her for it.
The whole issue of "is Sumunagashi ebru?" is another topic by itself.
If it is, can we also claim that watercolor is another form of oil painting?
Love to all.

Similar to Feridun, I question 8th c Japan as the beginning of
suminagashi. The earliest documented example is
"Sanjuroku-nin Shu", written in 1118, with examples of
suminagashi enhancing the calligraphy of the poets. The Heian
Era existed from 794-1185, so this documentation is late in the
period not earlier. It is possible that "liu sha shein"- the Chinese
art of painting on a gum solution, may be what you are referring
to. This was mentioned in an article by Irvin Cemil Schick in
"Antika" journal (Turkey), in 1988. However, I do not know of
actual documentation on the Chinese technique or read further
information as to earlier dates. Can anyone out there be of
further assistance so that this site gives the correct history?
