Aitoh Boku-Undo Suminagashi Marbling Kit

Boku-Undo has been making Japanese Sumi inks in Nara for 200 years. Among the many preserved traditions housed in Nara, sumi ink sticks may well be the most famous. Sumi ink has been made in Japan since 600. It was first used to copy sacred texts and today is a stable of Japanese calligraphy. Sumi requires great skill to create.
Suminagashi translates in English to "floating ink" and is a derivative of these sacred inks. Artists and Imperial Court scribes began creating beautiful intricate patterns, or marbling, as early as the 12th century.
Boku-Undo's inks do not require size to float or adhere to paper. All you need is plain water. Each kit comes with 6 12 ml tubes of ink in red, yellow, orange, blue, green and black. Full instructions are provided.
Made in Japan
