No more problems with some colors sinking and some spreading too much! I didn’t have a problem with the red ink, but just about every color either wouldn’t come out of the tube, or would come out very clumpy, resulting in blobs of ink on my paper. On other porous and semi-porous surfaces, the paints have excellent adhesion.

Only certain paints will work well in marbling – they have to be able to float on the surface of the “size”.

The gall can be added to the marbling colors to increase their spread and coverage, and can be diluted to add to the size for clear voids and other effects. We are professional marbles and cannot deal with that small a size. All of the paints below have been used with success by some experienced marblers. Versatile, thin flowable paint for silk painting and many other uses on most fabrics, even untreated leather. What will keep us from buying large quantities is the 2 ounce only size.
