      Dear Erik,
      I have not tried the marbo gum, but Pro Chem marbling paints are not satisfactory if you want to pursue classical patterns.  As the paints spread some of the colors get pin holes (weak film integrity).  Also, as you add multiple colors the edges tend to "feather" instead of keeping a smooth edge.  Both factors alter the line quality.

      I have just tried Marbogum together with their marbling colours.

      I'm just a novice in this game, but I have these observations:

      (- and of course it's my opinions only)

      + Easy to mix (needs some "settling time" however)

      + Usability of ready mixture last for several weeks

      + Nice, "silke-like" surface after drying

      - Dries up slowly (probably 'cause it leaves a relative thick, wet film on

      the paper)

      - Can in some cases (paper dependent?) make some colour shades in addition

      (like oil on water - or may be "pearly-lustered" is more correct. Much

      dependent of viewing angle and light conditions)
