Traditional marbling

Today I played with floating marbling inks and paint on proper liquid size which I had to make up.
This technique is quite different from marbling using shaving foam and wonderful flowers and leaves can be achieved with a little practice as well as all the other general marbling patterns.
I used Deka marble medium and Methocel. They both worked but the Deka medium was easier to use and didn't stink the house out like the Methocel did.
I would now use the Deka marble medium in preference as it also makes up smaller amounts and therefore is not as wasteful.
I also worked on to Indian cotton because I fancy making a quilt at some point but any fabrics or paper etc can be used.
