Tezhip, also known as illumination art, is a decorative art form that adorns manuscripts such as books and plates with crushed gold and various colors. The practice of illuminating manuscripts, particularly poetry books, dates back centuries and was often used to honor sultans, viziers, statesmen, and other prominent individuals. However, Tezhip is perhaps most well-known for decorating the Qur'an's first and last pages and the beginning of each sura. This art form requires a great deal of love, patience, joy, and grace to create, and the finished works are a testament to the beauty and skill of the artist.
HİCRİGÜL AND ENES NAMES
Hicrigül is a  feminine given name. It is derived from the name Hijr, which means "separation," and the  suffix -gül, which means "rose." So the name Hicrigül means "separation rose."
Enes is a  masculine given name that means "companion," "support," or "friend."  The name Anisa is the feminine version of the same meaning.

Müzehhibe Elif Ela Aydın emphasized the importance of hard work, patience, determination, and consistency in learning the art of illumination. She encouraged anyone seeking discipline in their life to try this art form, stating that talent is not necessary to create beautiful works. The key is to work with a disciplined master and apprentice and to pass the art down from generation to generation.
Tezhip, also known as gilding or ornamentation, involves creating intricate designs on cardboard using various techniques. It is an Ottoman art that has been passed down through the centuries and should be preserved and practiced traditionally, requiring dedication and effort. The process begins by taking a raw form of cardboard and designing patterns on it. The finished cloth product is then transferred to the edge of the line on the cardboard and further processed. It is a beautiful and rewarding art form that requires discipline and dedication to master.
Tezhip, the art of adornment, is a passion that imbues the soul with beauty and grace.

"While embroidering colors on cardboard, we are also embroidering beauty into our souls," said Elif Ela Aydin, a skilled artist known for her effective works in the art of illumination, or Tezhip. "I would humbly recommend that everyone find an art form that suits their abilities and engage with it. Through this process, we can truly appreciate and understand the nuances of art."
Aydin has been immersed in the world of Tezhip for many years and is passionate about sharing her knowledge and skills with others. "It is important to me to pass on the traditions and techniques of this art form and to help others see the beauty and detail in it," she said. "I believe anyone dedicated and willing to put in the effort can learn and succeed in this art."
HALKAR
Halkar is a technique used in the art of tezhip. The word "tezhip" means "decoration with gold only." The meaning of halkar is decoration. This decoration is a style in which gold or paint is gradually diluted to create a gradient, and the motifs' edges are left with a strong color. Gold is applied with the help of gelatinous water, and if it is directly left at the edges, it is called halkar; if it is finely brushed with a brush, it is called Tarama Halkar, and if it is applied with color along with gold it is called zerşikaf (colored Halkar). It is more spectacular when applied on dark backgrounds. Gold can also be polished with the help of akik or a natural stone called zermuhre. For a matte finish, muhre is applied on a sketch or thin paper. The halkar designs can also be created with different colored gold or paints.
