      If you read the English home page of www.geleneksel-ebru.com , you
      can see that I DON'T CLAIM TO SAY ANYTHING NEW. Your manner in
      addressing a person without using his name but just simply
      saying "this person" seems to me a little bit inappropriate. When I
      was in England in 70's, we used to address people by using "Mr/Mrs"

      The books on Traditional Turkish Marbling you mention tell nothing
      about the tradition (This is true if we assume that I know my
      tradition better than you do)

      From your statement " using alum is not marbling. Perhaps not
      traditional Turksih marbling" below, I understand that you accept the
      existence of a traditional Turkish Mrbling". If this is true, why are
      you so aggressive on the people who try to keep their tradition ?

      for traditional Turkish Marbling.

      You can create your own style noone can object this but please don't
      shadow on the people who try to perform this art according to their

      I am trying to understand the reason for your aggressiveness on this
      matter but cannot find an answer.

      I will write an answer to your letter
