Seems this has all been said, shown, etc., before. Perhaps this
person does not know this??? There are masterful books out
there on traditional Turkish marbling! However, the site does
open a little window for the novice to peak in. And I certainly
agree...the words "Traditional Turkish Marbling" have been
abused far too long by authors and marblers alike!
However, I take offense to the statement that using alum is not
marbling. Perhaps not traditional Turksih marbling, but far
superior in results for exceptional marbled images that surpass
what the old masters attempted with minimal materials. We all
learn from the masters, then branch out to create our own work.
That is what being an "ARTIST" is all about.
