Explore mixed media painting with Suminagashi, a fascinating Japanese paper marbling technique using water-based boku inks floated on plain tap water in a shallow tray. The name suminagashi literally means spilled ink. Students will create intricate, patterned rice papers using this ancient method and then learn how to use these papers to build gorgeous layered collages and finished paintings using acrylic paints. Liz will provide students with examples, suggestions, and plenty of feedback in this one-of-a-kind workshop. No prior marbling experience needed, but participants should have basic acrylic & mixed media painting skills.

Day 1: Students will learn how to create beautiful marbled papers using sumi inks dropped from small paintbrushes into a tray of water and printed on rice paper. Patterns and special colorful effects are achieved using a bamboo stylus and eyedroppers. This process is meditative, mesmerizing, and creates subtle, found-in-nature patterns and rings that are one-of-a-kind. They will create dozens of marbled rice papers, and marble on other heavier papers, sheet music, and other ephemera.

Day 2:  Liz’s slideshow will illustrate how some of her paintings started, progressed, and were brought to a satisfying conclusion. She will demo her step by step process of turning simple marbled papers and acrylic paints into abstract or loosely representational paintings, and the class will set to work on their own pieces. They’ll glue their handmade to substrates, and use acrylic paints and collage to complement and enhance the suminagashi marbling.

Day 3: Discover several non-standard marbling techniques and ways of handling the paper in the tray to create some surprise pieces. We’ll learn how to mask off parts of the paper to save it from marbling and how to pre-paint areas of the paper before we marble. Students may choose to continue to marble or they may further develop their paintings in progress.
