This freeform hand-marbled momi paper features soft shades of fiery coral, sunset orange, purplish blues, and olive greens blending softly together and accented with rich metallic copper swirls.
The base paper which is initially machine made from kozo and short pulp, is then hand-marbled and crumpled to feel “as soft as bed sheets”. The pattern is accomplished by skillfully adding oil based paints to float atop a tray of water, then moving the paint around to create a swirling pattern. The blank base sheet of paper is then carefully laid on top of the water, grabbing the swirling pigments, then quickly removed. The sheet is set aside to dry then once dry, additional colors are added using a tie-dye process, giving the backside of the sheet a colorful dyed pattern of its own as well. The sheet is then crumpled to produce it’s soft cotton-like feel, and set aside to dry once more.
This artistic technique creates a unique one-of-a-kind design each time. Our momi’s are a favorite choice for book arts, fine art use and craft applications. They are also perfect for stitching applications used in altered arts and collage.
