Ebru - Turkish Marbling Art

I had not been feeding my blog for so many days now. Had been occupied with work, daughter's school activities and housework; all rolled into one. Then, I was caught up with Lets Scrap Around the World Blog hop. By the time I am ready to feed my blog, I could hardly open my eyes. Finally, the 3-day "Eyes On Turkey Exhibition" consumed more of my time as I love to watch their Traditional Dances and also the Ebru art.

This is Fatma Cakmak, a Turkish Ebru Artist who also teaches this art to University students, and myself with one of her piece of Art.

I was intrigued by EBRU, that is the Turkish Art of Marbling. This is not a new art actually. The method maybe the same but the design and paints used for this art varies from artist to artist. I remember using acrylic paint and oil when I first learnt this art in school years ago. For Fatma Cakmak, the artsit who demonstrated this art used natural paint from plants. More information on this art can be found in the net and this is just one of the link here
Following are pictures that I took of Fatma Cakmak demonstrating this Turkish Art during the Exhibition at the Ground Fair of Kuala Lumpur Convention Center on March 2, 2012.
