Experiment with the modern and colourful aesthetic of this versatile and simple craft.

Suminagashi, which translates simply as ‘ink floating’, is the ancient technique of Japanese-style paper marbling. A highly instinctive and satisfying process, it closely connects the crafter, the ink and the water, and can be enjoyed by anyone. In this book, Natascha Maksimovic guides you through every stage, from choosing colours 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.
