The main issue of this research is introduction Origin of engraving cloud paper, history and its usage in calligraphy, book designing or the painting of early Islamic centuries. Understanding cloud paper and cloud computing leads to an understanding of the genuine history and application of cloud paper and its relationship to the excited elements of painting which  are essential to identifying and revitalizing the original and ancient styles and techniques of painting. Because we do not have objective information about the colors and methods of manufacture and the compounds used in the field of painting and works of the early centuries. The research method was descriptive-analytical and the data collection method was library and documentary. The purpose of this study is to identify cloud paper, its application and relation to some of the natural elements in early Islamic painting. The main question of the research is that what is the relationship how to run the mountains in Iranian Painting with how to make cloud paper? The findings of this study show that the primary origin of cloud paper was in the methods of inking and coloring of the early centuries (before the eighth century) and as a result of their use in the natural elements found in the paintings works.  In other words, seventh-century cloud paper has been inspired by the particular colors and styles used in the mountains, rocks, clouds, and so on. Because the main ingredient in creating both works has been color and cloud paper is nothing except color integration, the connection between the beauty of particular colors in the past with painting and cloudiness has been strengthened. The main method of running the mountains in Iranian painting and the method of making cloud paper are related to the specific characteristic of early-century colors. Recent research shows that in the fourth to sixth centuries AH there were paints with special properties that were used in painting. Exemplary examples of the instructions for making these colors, as seen above, are found in early centuries versions and treatises. Because of the identity and personality of each color in the past, the color of the clouds and the marble or naturalness of the mountains and the rest of the elements in the paintings, it is quite obvious. The history of all the miraculous and anonymous motifs goes back to the paintings of the early centuries, which have lost their identity over the centuries. The term "role on water", which describes the design and role it plays in making cloud paper, is derived from one of the important features of early-century coloring. Clouds seem to have been a mix of beautiful and special colors. At first they used decorative and coloring in books and paintings. For the sake of beauty in the following centuries, single-leaf decorative applications have been conferred on the court of kings and elders. According to the above evidence, these colors are very similar to the mountains and clouds of the paintings.
