Did some marbling first time today. I'm using the Createx Airbrush
colors, but the red I've got does not turn out red at all. It goes
pink (I'm mixing water to thin the colors a bit). Any suggestions on
how to get red instead of pink?
- They may just have too much dispersant in the red. You may have to adjust
all the other colors to work with the red my adding the appropriate
dispersant for these paints. I don't use them, can't advise further, but
this is usually the way to fix it.
- I don't use anything else except water. In fact the whole thing looks
really pale compared to the original colors. Does one have to build
up the paints on the surface to be able to get darker colors? What
colors do you use?

- Try layering more color on. Use the red first so the other colors
concentrate it. You still may need a dispersant.
I use my own colors, many people use Golden acylics....I cannot elaborate
on the, maybe others can. All paints are not the same. Each manufacturer
has their own formulas, so for example all acrylics or all atercolors do
not work the same for marbling.
