The Ancient Art of Japanese Marbling. Suminagashi or "floating ink" is the process of marbling plain paper with water and ink to transform it into something vibrant and colorful. The technique evokes the union of two bodies: the colored inks float on the water’s surface and merge to create a unique pattern that is then transferred onto the absorbent surface of the paper. Just as the future spouses, unique and beautiful, the harmony between the two shades form a landscape, a magical moment symbolizing the couple. Thus the first page of the tale of your new life together has been created.
