Call it marbling; call it painting on water. Either way the outcome makes for some very interesting art. Some examples remind me of the sky in Van Gogh's Starry Night.

The art of Ebru Sanati - Ebru is a traditional Turkish and Islamic art, where the artist paints on water and then transfers the image to paper.
