Takaji Kuroda found that we can create many more new patterns by utilizing Marangoni Effect to compress direction. Marbling in Europe & other cuntries mainly use only expansion direction to make patterns. Fortunately, Suminagashi only uses tap water (unthickened), both direction of Marangony Effect(Expansion & Copmression) can be effectively applied to color thin films which float on the surface of water.
