How I Met the Marbling Muse on the Road to Immortality

Diane Maurer, artist and author, tells the story of how teaching, demonstrating and writing books about decorative paper, including Japanese suminagashi marbling, grew out of her career as a paper artist. Forty of her marbled and paste painted papers, biographical story and ephemera relating to her career were purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She demonstrated the suminagashi technique after her lecture.

You may view a recording of her presentation and demonstration here.

Diane provided a one-page introduction to sumnagashi marbling. Click Diane Maurer Suminagashi Marbling Info for a printable PDF.

Here is a PDF list of Diane's materials if you'd like to create beautiful suminagashi papers, too.
