Friday Night Flicks: Suminagashi

Suminigashi (“floating ink”) is a Japanese form of paper marbling. There are quite a few videos of the process on the internet, but tonight’s flick by Tetsuhiro Koyanagi shows suminigashi from a different point of view. The artist works in a glass vat and the entire procedure is shot from below.



If you want to learn more about suminagashi this weekend, you can watch a detailed twenty minute instruction video here.
