Marbling is enjoyable art with an unlimited variety of patterns and color combinations. It never gets boring.

The art of ebru creates one time reverse mono prints, through floating drops of paint on water, manipulating those drops into patterns with a stylus or rakes and combs, then transferring the pattern to a piece of fabric, paper, wood, ceramic, or leather. 

In addition to bookbinding, marbled papers can be used for picture framing, place mats, note cards, desk sets, collages, origami, lampshades, and for covering just about anything such as boxes and cans.

Marbling on fabric was never very satisfactory, until  recent years, with the development of acrylic paints. The traditional marbling inks were just not durable enough to stand up to washing. Now, though, fine marbling can be done just as easily on cloth as on paper with these new paints. The colors are much more vivid and brilliant and long-lasting than ever in the past. The best fabrics to use are natural fibers, such as cotton and silk, since they will absorb the color better than artificial fibers.
