Floating Pictures: The Art of Turkish Marbling


Richard Aldorasi introduces Erbu, one of the most unique and beautiful forms of Turkish marbling art. Using this classical technique, students will create one of a kind floating pictures by drawing colorful designs on top of water, and then carefully placing paper or fabric on the surface to absorb the dye. This project will produce paper perfect for bookmaking, wearable fashion and decorative wall art with beautiful, swirling patterns.
