Paints For Marbling

Only certain paints will work well in marbling - they have to be able to float on the surface of the "size". Some do, some don't, even within a brand. The thicker paints or troublesome colors are thinned with water, Versatex Dispersant, or Oxgall to help them float better. All of the paints below have been used with success by some experienced marblers. Again, some colors will float better than others. Dispersant is your friend.
