In Paper Marbling: Learn in a Weekend, experiment with the colorful modern aesthetic of this versatile craft.
Suminagashi, which translates simply as “ink floating,” is the ancient technique of Japanese-style paper marbling. An intuitive and satisfying process, it closely connects the crafter, the ink, and the water, and can be enjoyed by anyone.
In this straightforward guide, designer Natascha Maksimovic takes you through every stage, from choosing colors right through to your very own finished pieces. Included in the book are five easy-to-follow projects showing how marbled paper can elevate crafts and interiors alike. Make stationery, bunting, paper flowers, wallpaper, and lampshades, or simply place your bold designs into a frame, stand back, and admire.
Like every title in the . . . in a Weekend series, this book will take you from beginner to accomplished creator in just a couple of days!
