Room-3 Spirits of Suimonga-
 New way of Suminagashi, Marbling

Back to Top

   The secrets had been hidden in the Suminagashi for over 800 years. Mr.Takaji Kuroda
found thatwe can create many more new patterns by utilizing  Marangoni Effect  to
 compression  direction while marbling in Europe and other cuntries mainly use only
expansion direction to make patterns. 

    Fortunately, Suminagashi, The Japanese Marbling, use only tap water(unthickened),
 bothdirection of Marangony Effect(Expansion and Copmression) can be
 effectively applied to colour thin films which float on the surface of water.

    His discovery of this fact was introduced his research on microgravity which is very
 important phenomena in space.

    Already he created thousands of unique patterns like below.   

Basic medium       = Tap water(unthickened)
Colour(Soft film)   = Same as classic suminagashi
Colour(Hard film)  = Add metaric compound to dye or colour liquid(see "Method")
Use of Marangoni effect= Expansion and compression direction
