      Hi Jarmila,

      I checked with my friend Diane Maurer-Mathison, Professional Marbling Artist and Author and she replied...

      "The marbler Jan is talking about is Gabriele Grunebaum. A sample of her work and an brief explanation appears on page 45 of my book, The Ultimate Marbling Handbook. She often thins her color 1-1 with turpentine and heats the water to 100 degrees Fahrenheit in a zinc tray. She calls the technique "Crash Marbling."


      I hope this helps...

      Warm regards,
