Introduction Suminagashi Paper Marbling

60.00

Create colorful ink patterns on the surface of water for
paper decoration.

Suminagashi translated means floating black ink. It is the ancient meditative Japanese practice of gently floating pigments on the surface of water with a brush and then capturing the mono print image on an absorbent paper.

Lightly touch the water surface with the tip of a brush to release colorful ink and create original free floating designs; a contact print is lifted after carefully placing a sheet of paper over the image.

Pamela Martinez has been teaching, studying and practicing the ancient art of marbling over ten years and is a member of the Sumi-E Society. Ms. Martinez provides Suminagashi instruction at the Botanic Garden in Glencoe, workshops for the Sumi-E Society, Gilda’s Club and individual lessons. The Artist believes the spiritual practice of Suminagashi teaches the importance of self expression, provides the mystery of an undetermined result and includes the use of various techniques to challenge the imagination
