With a crinkled texture as “soft as bed sheets”, this hand marbled momi paper features colorful shades of turquoise and purple blending softly together, accented with metallic swirls of copper. Initially machine made from kozo and short pulp, these papers are then hand-marbled and crumpled using the following technique.
Oil-based paints are added to a tub of water. The oil based paint, which floats atop the water, is moved around to create a swirling pattern. The uncolored base sheet of paper is then laid atop the water, grabbing the swirling paint pattern, then quickly removed. The sheet is then set aside to dry. Once dry, additional colors are added using the tie-dye process. 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.
