Starry Night

June 23, 2016

Turkish technique

Garip Ay, an artist from Turkey uses an old technique known as decorative paper art and described as ‘painting on water’. It looks very much like what I know to be called ‘marble paper’. Garip recreates Vang Gogh’s Starry Night in the video below. I suggest that you watch the video and if interested go to this LINK to find all kinds of  information on marble paper. I used to make marble paper with my middle school students and use the paper for book covers. It’s magical!
