- Thanks Roz,
That IS it! I can't tell you how I have searched in vain for that
video. My hat is off to you. I have "liked" it on youtube and bookmarked
the link so maybe I won't lose it again. I'm going now to rewatch it and
try to see what kind of oil inks they use. They don't say but you can
see the tubes in the video.
as terminology is a subject of foremost interest for me (we need to make sure that we mean the same thing when we use the same word or confusion will be even bigger as it is now): there is no such thing as oil inks. Either it's oil, or it's inks. Inks are aquaeous. So it's oil paints, or either inks. Precision is very helpful.
German differentiates even further: Tinte (without a binder, ink) and Tusche (with a binder, Indian ink).

I admit I know very little about oils and nothing about ink but the
ladies in the video, (Georgie Sharp and Melva Waterman) definitely say
that they use "oil-based inks because they're brighter." I have watched
closely but I can't see the brand.
I again thank the people on this list who helped reconnect me to this
video and these great marblers.
I found at least one source for oil based inks
So I am confused now. Why can inks not be oil based? And what are these
things being sold as oil-based inks? And most importantly, what are
these great ladies using? Because I want to try it.
when you want to try marbling with oil based paints, just do it. What works for others doesn't necessarily work for you anyway (and vice versa), everyone needs to make their own experience. There are so many parameters to marbling, paints are only one of them and the manufacturer of paints just another. There is no universal-one-fits-for-all paint.
That oil based paints are usually brighter does not depend on a certain brand.
