The meaning of marbling can shortly be described as the method of scattering insoluble paint over dense water to achieve an embroidery paper. The word ''Ebru'' was derived from the Persian word ‘ebri’. The meaning of Ebri when translated into English means “looking cloudy’. Turkish craftsmen that work on this art are called “ebrucu” meaning “marbling artist”.
