Another Great Marbling resource is Heidi Richenbach Finley, who is based in Michigan. She not only teaches classes in marbling, but as an artist herself she has created a line of paints and other marbling supplies, including a great kit, that is worth looking at. Her colors are vibrant and her manual with her Serious Beginners Marbling Kit is excellent. Take a look on YouTube for her videos and at her etsy website for marbling supplies.
