      I used to use the old A&P green at times, until they added some weird stuff to it, it work but leaves an odd film. Better yet would be pure liquid soap, maybe Castille, perhaps from a health shop, no funny stuff.

      True, and ox-gall turned out to be a waste of money as well. Here is a secret I learned from a professional paper marbler: instead of ox-gall, use Palmolive dish soap (the green variety) diluted with soft boiling water (1 part Palmolive, 19 parts water). For some colors, a few drops to a teaspoonful of diluted soap will suffice while for others (especially darker colors), the paint might have to be mixed with a cupful.
