- I often mix mica particles, available from a papermaking supply house into
watercolor paint to achieve metallic colors. A teaspoon to about 1/2 cup of

And Jill -- we've had three wonderful marblers' gatherings in the U.S. One in
Santa Fe, one in San Francisco, and another in Maryland. Ink & Gall, no

San Francisco. Wish you could all come over and watch it.......
