I need information
- I'm going to guess that your last sentence should read "with what ink is the marbling done?" Actually it's not ink but paint and there are different types of marbling using different types of paint. A common one is acrylic paint.

- Another kind of "ink" is watercolor or gouache , diluted with water and mixed with ox gall . This type of paint has some advantages over acrylics , like some patterns ( shell, stormont) work best with watercolor . However, acrylics are waterproof, unlike watercolors, so some people prefer them because of this.
