Re: History of marbling
- Thank you so much for the link to this fascinating site. I too, am
new to this art, and believe that even if we don't do things in the
traditional way, it is important to learn about it, to understand
where it came from, and to know the history of it. Thank you again.

year I took a course for 8 months on marbling and I realized that
marbling (or ebru as we say in Turkey) is not an art forming with just
paint and brush. But it made with one's own spirit and enthusiasm. It
reflects the feelings and emotions to the water. It is said that old
masters of ebru could understand which mood the pupil had by looking
at the paper he did.

Babaoglu's site. He is one of the great masters of marbling. He
explains the history of marbling, materials and other things. And
there is also a gallery. I hope you enjoy it.
