Blue/Purple/Gold Marbled Handmade Paper
20" x 30"
Subtle and sophisticated colors of blue and purple blend softly together, while accented with rich metallic gold swirls. With a crinkled texture that is as ?Ç£soft as bed sheets?Ç¥, this hand marbled momi paper is a favorite for book arts, fine art use and craft applications. Our momi?ÇÖs are also great for stitching applications used in altered arts and collage. These Thai momi marbled papers are initially machine made from kozo and bamboo pulp, then hand-marbled and crumpled using the following technique. Oil-based paints are added to a tub of water. The paint, which floats atop the water, is moved around to create a swirling pattern. The 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?ÇÖs soft cotton-like feel, and set aside to dry once more. This artistic technique creates a unique one-of-a-kind design each time. Please note: Given the delicate nature of fine paper, all flat paper purchases are final sale.
