The Mesmerizing Art of Turkish Marbling | Nice Content | Tatered


[MUSIC] Marbling is the centuries-old art form of
floating paint on a thickened water bath, creating designs and
unique patterns, using special tools. You dip your whisk into the paint,
and then you tap it on your hand and you sprinkle it across
the surface of the bath. And that pattern is a traditional
pattern called stone. [MUSIC] And then transferring that image
onto paper or fabric, or wood, or anything that’s porous. I fell in love with marbling,
and I fell in love with it hard. I realized as I had never been
exposed to this art form before, and I couldn’t believe it. It became my sort of passion, my mission
to bring marbling to the masses. [MUSIC] The second you put that piece of paper
down and that image is transferred, that’s it,
you are never gonna create that again. So every single time you create something
unique, intricate, one of a kind. [MUSIC] There are a lot of things that
affect the pattern or design, one of those things is the weather. So as the temperature in
the studio starts to warm up and humidity levels start to drop,
that’s gonna affect the way my pattern, or my design, or the way my paints are gonna
spread across the surface of the bath. [MUSIC] Marbling is a game of surface tension. It’s making sure that the bath is
thick enough to hold my paints up. And my paints are thin enough to
float across the surface of the bath. [MUSIC] Its influence, its reflection has
been shaped by all the people and all the countries that have nurtured and fostered this art form
over thousands of years. [MUSIC] I always encourage my students
that when we step into the studio, we are striving for
purpose, not perfection. And our job as marblers is to
simply observe and adjust. [MUSIC]>>So what did you think? Tell us in the comments. Click here to subscribe and live forever. Click here for more stuff from us. And tune in every Sunday to watch

  5. Holy shit the actual marbling, what with all those amazing colours and the patterns changing, is r/woahdude material

  6. Seeing as it's turkish, I wonder if this originated with artists in parts of the muslim world being restricted from depicting living things (God's creation) and having a pseudo-arms race of "who can get the best form/pattern art".

  7. Its okay I guess. But its a bit too random, I have seen similar artworks with a lot more order and structure to it.
    This is merely chaotic.

  8. She is a really insightful and amazing artist. I know another artist a lot like her. I bet she is a fantastic teacher.

  9. I love marbled paper, don't get me wrong, but I think calling it art is a bit much, it's really more of a craft.

  10. Well, you have to use a specific kind of fluid and marbling paint in order to achieve those round drops or the paint will get mixed in the water.

  13. Artform… Bitch please, trying to sound superior and shit, anybody can do this, something she deliberately left out of her little speech, she's no artist, she's a wanna be that found an easy way to make patterns that look pretty. Moving on.

  15. Can you tell me how to thicken the water and what type of paint you use? I have been trying to swirl a guitar but having trouble. I am wondering if thickening the water will help and using something other than enamel paint will do the trick.
