Turkish Marbling at Liverpool Food & Drink Festival

Still slightly wet. It dried with a perfectly mat finish

I went to a food & drink festival in one of my local parks yesterday. In amongst all the fab food was a 'Visit Turkey' tent. They were doing food things like making baklava but also some Turkish crafts. There was a lady doing marbling ... laying the inks onto oily water in blobs and coming up with the most amazing designs. This flower started as 3 blobs of green and 2 red. She then used a pointy tool to pull the inks about. Then printed it onto paper. I asked if I could take a photograph and she actually gave me the print! I only wish I'd had the presence of mind to photograph the work in progress but I was too enthralled by it all :o)

This is the lady who was doing the marbling. Sorry about the flare on the photograph, it was such a sunny day!

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave. I appreciate you taking the time. Clare x
