The magic of the Ebru comes from the fact that the author has no idea how his final work will look, and there is only an idea of ​​the composition. The works created with the technique are unique and can never be re-created. Once the work is ready, it can be transferred to paper, cloth, clay or other foundation.

It is supposed that the technique arises in the 9th century in Turkmenistan and conquers with its grace the whole Ottoman Empire. The artists who controlled the Ebru were very famous. Initially, with their skills, they mainly created paintings and decorations of pages and covers from the Koran. The oldest preserved work in the world created by this technique dates back to 1554.

In the past, every master himself made the dyes he was painting with. It was also necessary to make the tools needed for the Ebru. The tradition has always required the presence of tulip – a symbol of the God and Rose – a symbol of the Prophet Muhammad. Nowadays special dyes and tools can be found in stores, which makes it much easier to practice that kind of an art. Christians also use the techniques to decorate Easter eggs.
