What is EBRU: Ebru is a type of paper marbling art, which has touched Asian and European countries over centuries. The particular art form of Ebru emerged in Turkey and Persian countries in the 15th century as a part of this art stream. The paints sprinkled on a special liquid take amazing shapes in the hands of the artist. How this creation transfers on to the paper is a little bit of magic waiting to be discovered.
