A Dark Water Recreation of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ Using Paper Marbling Techniques

June 16, 2016

In this brief video, artist Garip Ay creates an interpretation of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ painting using a paper marbling technique—or more specifically the Turkish method called ebru. Marbling involves the careful process of floating colors on the surface of water or a slightly more viscous solution called size, before transferring the design or pattern to a special sheet of paper in a dramatic flourish. If you liked this, here’s another video from the 1970s that demonstrates even more elaborate marbling techniques. (via Metafilter)
