doesn't work as well as regular marbling
By marble lover
Comments about Aitoh Boku-Undo Suminagashi Marbling Kit:
I've done a lot of regular marbling with the water thickener, and I've done some Suminigashi with the surfactant, and both have been very successful. This however, really doesn't work very well. I can get the image to float on the water, but it smudges when I try to lift it with the paper. I'm pretty disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your initial experience with this kit. From your description, it sounds like the paper you used wasn't absorbent enough. Best results are obtained from these inks with an unsized paper (also called waterleaf). Please know that our Product Information Team is happy to offer suggestions for papers to try and to further troubleshoot your application. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they'll be glad to help!

Oh My God! So Much Fun to Use These
from Wells River, VT
I bought this to try my hand at paper marbling. Wow! Such an easy thing to do, and positively mesmerizing. The product delivers great color, and it is so simple. I used it on copperplate paper, which is pricey, but holds up well when wet. This is the dawning of a new hobby for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was looking for a quick and easy project for my after school art club. The class watched the video then we used the inks to create marbled papers which the kids are using for holiday cards! Thank you for the detailed video and great inks. So vibrant and beautiful.

Japanese Marbling Kit
By Sherry Berry
from Colorado Springs, CO
I have not tried this out yet; waiting for a friend to return from vacation. I'm excited to try this out on fabric as well as paper. I make books & will use the papers for the inside covers of the books & the fabric marbling will be used for a quilt project.

Great for learning to Marble
from Paris, KY
I am just learning to marble and these inks are easy to use and easy to clean afterwards. Get the right paper and you will not stop for hours.

This product is really wonderful. I am a middle school art teacher and I used this in so many different ways. It is easy to use. I can demo and the students instantly get it. The ink lasts a long time and the colors are very beautiful. The only complaint I have about this is that the papers dry way lighter than how they look once pulled from the water. This is a hit and I will continue using for a long time! Way easier and cleaner than shaving cream marbling!
