Our Thai marbled papers are initially machine made from kozo and short pulp, then hand-marbled 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. This artistic technique creates a unique one-of-a-kind design each time.
