You could contact Colophon Book Arts Supply in Olympia who manufacture
water based colours especially for marbling. There are a number of helpful
books around which you may like to obtain/borrow, also a video produced by
Mimi Schleicher in North Carolina.
Mimi can be contacted at P.O. Box 2195 Ashville Nc 28802, Ph 1-800 383 6238.
The two books mentioned are: Marbling Paper & Fabric by Carol Taylor, with
Patty Schleicher, Mimi Schleicher and Laura Sims
Marbling, A Complete Guide to c,Ann Alaiating Beautiful Patterned Papers
and Fabrics by Diane Vogel Maurer with Paul Maurer.
There are a lot of other books around, but I feel these would provide a
useful starting point..
I am an experienced paper marbler, and would be more than happy to help you
with problems you may encounter.
Please reply to me direct and not to the list.
