Our Thai momi marbled papers are initially machine made from kozo and short 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’s soft cotton-like feel, and set aside to dry once more. This artistic technique creates a unique one-of-a-kind design each time!
