I marble using oil colours( with turpentine) and water mixible oil colours
I'm not a pure traditionalist about marbling and enjoy the fact that oil
marbleing produces different results to watercolour and alum type.
It is possible to get very bright colours, but the lines are not as fine,
but to me that is a good thing
You can see some examples in my gallery,

I've worked on all sort of different papers and fabrics, it's certainly
worth trying, even if you move onto the more tradtional style later on.
