Experiment with the modern and colourful aesthetic of this versatile and simple craft.

Suminagashi, which translates simply as 'ink floating', is the ancient technique of Japanese-style paper marbling. A highly instinctive and satisfying process, it closely connects the crafter, the ink and the water, and can be enjoyed by anyone. In this book, Natascha Maksimovic guides you through every stage, from choosing colours right through to your very own finished pieces. Included in the book are five easy-to-follow projects showing how marbled paper can elevate crafts and interiors alike. Make stationery, bunting, paper flowers, wallpaper and lampshades, or simply place your bold designs into a frame, stand back and admire.

Natascha Maksimovic is a designer, artist and wallpaper-maker based in Margate, Kent, where she practices the time-honoured art form of 'suminagashi' marbling. Having previously worked as a designer in the film industry alongside Sir Ridley Scott, Natascha decided to set up her own studio to explore both craftsmanship and collaboration, and her bespoke wallpapers have since featured in Elle Decoration, Living Etc, The Guardian, The Sunday Times and The Daily Telegraph.
