Re: Dream of Water
- Hi All,
Please forgive me for my ignorance, but can anyone explain to me what "barut ebru" is? It seems to me that it's a specific style of marbling attributed to a particular person...and not necessarily a traditional/historical pattern or practice.
Many thanks for any insight!

barut marbling is the special technique and style developed by Hikmet Barutçugil. Definitely not traditional, but can be beautifully combined with the traditional patterns and styles.If you pay a visit to his website, ebristan.com, you'll see many examples.

what is the cost of shipping 'Book Rate' to California. Also, let's say we could find 5-10 people to purchase the book, what would cost of book + cost of shipping be.
Thanks a lot;
