Suminagashi (sue-mee-na-ga-she) is a water marbling technique that originated in the 12th century Japanese word that means “ink floating” and is used to create patterns and decorative designs by delicately floating liquid inks on water.  This technique can be used to make mono-prints on absorbent surfaces such as paper. 

Kristoferson Studio creates decorative suminagashi papers using this technique to create one, two, and three-layer printed papers. They can be purchased from a portfolio of existing suminagashi papers.  Custom work can be created for you on a variety of types and weights of paper.
