Item details

This raw edge (no hem) Ebru hand-marbled 5mm silk fabric (thinner and more see through than the 8mm silk) is ideal for artistic, craft or design uses such as nuno felting, silk collage or decoupage, clothing design, home décor design (lined pillows, quilts, wall hangings or lampshades) or other fabric arts and crafts (embroidery, small purses, notebook covers).

Pink Flower on Stones - Dark pink, light pink and white are the colours used in this marbled silk design. The paint was dropped onto the water surface with a whisk and the centre flower was drawn by the use of a fine point metal skewer.

Care Instructions:
This silk piece was treated with alum, hand-marbled in a water tray with carrageenan size, rinsed in cool water to remove the excess carrageenan and alum, line dried, then washed with a mild detergent, line dried again and finally ironed on the back to heat set the acrylic paint. As the fabric has been prewashed it is ready to use. Should you need to wash it again for any reason, hand wash in cool water with mild soap, then hang to dry and once dry, iron on the back using a low setting.

All my art work is created using the concept of the ancient art form of Ebru (Turkish paper marbling). The paint is dropped onto a water surface which has been thickened with carrageenan (Irish Moss). The pigments (water based acrylics) are thinned so they float on the surface when dropped by a whisk brush. The colours spread without mixing and are moved about in the water tray with a variety of tools such as combs, rakes, wooden and metal skewers and even wind to form intricate one of a kind designs. Paper, fabric, canvas or wood is gently laid face down on the completed design floating in the water bath and the design, just like magic, is transferred to the surface of the item placed on the water. The item is then rinsed under water to remove the excess carrageenan and then placed on a rack to dry. Once dry, papers and fabric are pressed. Each finished Ebru piece is one-of-a-kind, as unique as a fingerprint and can never be exactly recreated. Ebru is a meditative process requiring a light hand and an open mind where the artist must let go of preconceived expectations as the design unfolds. This artwork has all been created using my own personal style and vision as I explore and expand upon this truly amazing and wonderful medium.
