Full description
Play around with colors and techniques to create a beautiful marble work of art with the help of a master artist. Enter the art studio and put on your apron before listening to a brief introduction on Ebru Art and the materials you'll be using. Afterward, your teacher will show you the techniques one by one and you'll begin to practice. Create colorful marble patterns by sprinkling and brushing color pigments on a pan of oily water and then transform this pattern to the paper. The special tools of the trade are brushes of horsehair bound to straight rose twigs, a deep tray made of unknotted pinewood, natural earth pigments, cattle gall, and tragacanth. It is believed to be invented in thirteenth-century Turkistan. At the end of the workshop, you can take your beautiful works of art home with you after they've dried.
