Marbled giấy Nhật Bản

29 Tháng Bảy

Tìm kiếm một dự án in ấn thú vị? Muốn thử một kỹ thuật Nhật Bản? We made suminagashi marbled paper mono prints at my Japan-themed art camp this summer. The project was easy and very successful. No two prints were alike, and my campers loved the process.

Please see the Blick video tutorial at the end of the postit shows the entire process.

You will need a special marbling kit for this project. It costs about $15. You can use it to marble paper or fabric.

Aitoh Boku-Undo Suminagashi Marbling Kit – $14.98

từ: Blick Vật liệu Nghệ thuật

Vật liệu

  • Basins for water
  • Suminagashi Marble Print kit (có sẵn tại AmazonXem)
  • paper** to fit basins
  • small brushes
  • palette with wells
  • thread
  • newspaper to project tables and skim surface of water after printing
  • horizontal drying space
  • smocks or aprons

(**Ghi: The best paper has little sizing. I didn’t want to buy expensive paper for art camp. We experimented printing with different types of paper. We tried copy paper, recycled drawing paper, and thin Japanese calligraphy paper (ughtoo thin. It ripped).

We tried two types of printing: alternating concentric colors (I call them ‘tree rings’) bản in, and float paper prints (intense colors).

Concentric ‘tree rings’ bản in

I was inspired by this EXCELLENT post from Julie Voight’s Art for Small Hands blog. Julie has ALL the instructions and lovely student examples for creating the beautiful concentric prints. You will need the palette and tiny, thin paintbrushes for this. Dip the brush in dye, and barely touch the water with the brush tips. Alternate colors. (Chú ý: SEE THE BLICK VIDEO AT THE END OF THE POST). This is a very neat process, and you only use a little bit of color (your $15 kit will last a very long time).

We created single and double prints.

‘Float paper’ bản in.

Bold! You need the reusable coated paper circles that come with the kit. You float the circles on the water, then aim drops of color at them straight out of the bottle.

To swirl and marble the ink, we experimented with blowing the floating ink, and dragging a single thread through it. We also tried second ‘ghost printsafter our initial prints.

We also printed onto some yellow paper stars I had left over from another project. The colored background looks great!

This used more dye than the concentric ring project. It can be a messier option. The kids had to squeeze the dye straight from the bottle, then recap the colors and put them down. Soon there was bright color on the outside of the tubes. Next time I will arrange some sort of stand so the tubes can stay upright (and uncapped) for the printing process.

Here is a great 10 minute tutorial from Blick.

Give suminagashi a try. It truly is a no-fail project.

Diều cá Nhật Bản (Koinobori)

Koinobori fish kites

What are koinobori?

Koinobori are carp (koi) kites that are flown in Japan on Children’s Day (May 5th). The koi fish embodies the qualities that parents want for their children: courage, strength and determination. The holiday was formerly known as Boy’s Day, but now celebrates all children.

I Live in Tokyo by Mari Takabayashi covers the Japanese holidays and life in Japan month-by-month.

We learned about Children’s Day in the book I Live in Tokyo by Mari Takabayashi. The book covers Japanese holidays month-by-month. In Japan, families display koinobori on a flagpole: the top black fish is the father, the red fish is the mother, and the smaller fish are the children.

Koinobori are also flown in large group displays, as in this video. I love when the wind hits and koinobori actually look like they are swimming upstream.

Dự án nghệ thuật:

I saw this fabulous, simple koinobori project on Cassie Stephens blog. Click vào đây for Cassie’s detailed instructions and gorgeous photos.

Vật liệu:

  • Roylco Japanese Carp Windsock kit
  • colored Sharpies
  • dầu phấn màu (especially white)
  • màu nước đánh dấu (chúng tôi sử dụng đánh dấu Crayola) and/or
  • màu nước
  • Ziploc bags, two per fish, taped together to create a long rectangle
  • băng
  • spray bottle
  • white glue or hot glue
  • clothespins (to clamp the mouth until glue sets)
  • lỗ đục lỗ
  • ribbon or yarn for hanging

Decorate paper kites with colored Sharpies and oil pastel

Kids drew patterns, outlined eyes and scales, and created a border with oil pastels and colored Sharpies. To create white areas, color with white oil pastel to create a resist.

Color selectively with marker and watercolor


Next they added a some color with Crayola markers and watercolors. I emphasized they didn’t have to color in the whole fish as the markers and watercolors would diffuse when sprayed with water.

Then the kids placed their kites on the long Ziploc ‘placematsand sprayed them with water. Some carefully tilted the setup so the colors would diffuse in a certain direction. Let dry on mats.

Glue and hang

After drying, I used hot glue to assemble the kites. I attached the cardboard strips that support the kites open mouth, and clipped each with a clothespin until set. I also used hot glue to close the back and part of the tail. Cuối cùng, we added three single hole punches to the cardboard mouth, and strung the kites with ribbon. All the instructions are included in the Roylco kit.

In Gyotaku cá Nhật Bản

16 Tháng Bảy


Gyotaku means ‘fish rubbingand is a printmaking technique traditionally used by Japanese fishermen to record their catches. It was the perfect project for my Japan-themed art camp.

We began by watching this brief video of Hawaiian gyotaku artist/fisherman Naoki.

The campers were really excited to start!

Vật liệu:

  • rubber Gyotaku Fish Printing Replicas (or fresh real whole fish)
  • black tempera cake, water and stiff brush
  • bản sao giấy
  • paper towels
  • phấn phấn màu
  • màu nước

Hướng dẫn


We tried printing with thin Japanese paper and with copy paper. The thin paper wrinkled and copy paper stayed smooth. We also tried printing with liquid orange tempera.

Paint the fish with black tempera cake. Cover fish with copy paper and rub (don’t wiggle the paper!). Kéo in.
If the fine details (such as scales) don’t show, try Naoiki’s method: re-coat the fish and then pounce with a balled up paper towel to remove some paint. Cover with copy paper and take another print. Cho khô.

Color the print with chalk pastels

In the video, Naoki hand-colors his gyotaku prints with watercolors. We used chalk pastels to add color to our fish. Campers blended the pastels with their hands or with tissues.

I love how they turned out!

Campers also had the option of painting or decorating the negative spaces with watercolor. I really think they did a nice job.
