Garip Ay – Starry Night – Ebru

I was amazed by the skill and technique of this artist (Garip Ay) that I just had to share…. it’s beautiful….This technique is apparently called “ebru” and is a form of paper marbling using pigments that float on top of water or another sized liquid, which is then transferred onto paper to produce a monotype print. Apparently this technique has been around for over a thousand years (first recorded practice in China) but more commonly seen in the recent West as marbled book covers…..enjoy a master craftsman at work….
