About Water Marbling
Sisters Silk Art is thrilled to introduce you to an exciting, colorful, reinvention of an ancient art form...water marbling... on fabric! Every day we are mesmerized by the simplicity of this old world, magical art form.
It is believed the mystical art of water marbling dates back to the middle ages, being developed nearly simultaneously in Japan known as Suminagashi and in Turkey as Ebru.
Ancient artists would carefully float drops of ink on their water's surface. Then they would gently blow across the ink stains to create waves of movement and texture. Later, they used sticks and hairs to produce different, exciting effects.These ancient artists captured and preserved the art on paper.
Today we bring you a rainbow's array of acrylic colors, tools to simplify the outcome and fabric to capture your beautiful, artistic experience! Prepare to be amazed!!
