This freeform hand-marbled momi paper features soft shades of rustic peach, violet-blues, deep rosy-pinks and hints of olive green blending softly together and accented with metallic swirls of gold. The base paper which is initially machine made from kozo and short pulp, is then hand-marbled and crumpled to feel as soft as bed sheets. The pattern is accomplished by skillfully adding oil based paints to float atop a tray of water, then moving the paint around to create a swirling pattern. The blank base sheet of paper is then carefully laid on top of the water, grabbing the swirling pigments, then quickly removed. The sheet is set aside to dry then once dry, additional colors are added using a tie-dye process, giving the backside of the sheet a colorful dyed pattern of its own as well. The sheet is then crumpled to produce its soft cotton-like feel, and set aside to dry once more. This artistic technique creates a unique one-of-a-kind design each time. Our momis are a favorite choice for book arts, fine art use and craft applications. They are also perfect for stitching applications used in altered arts and collage.
