Abstract
The Ebrû-maker Azade Akar from Istanbul shows the making of turkish Marbled paper designs and comparison with those of the artists Mustafa Düzgünman and Niyazi Sayin. Preparation of a sticky background of Tragant rubber in a shallow rectangular bath, introduction to colours and instruments, dipping technique, including using bovine gall so that the colours spread over the water surface but mix neither with each other nor with the background. Finally they are gathered with a comb or needles and transferred to a paper overlay.
