Oooh, I love your marbling in this one! Fabulous. Are you using acrylics?

Do you mind if I ask which brand/style you prefer? I'm testing out some new product right now, as I realize the acrylics I started with didn't stand up to dilution too well.

I live in Seattle and the Art store of choice here is called Blick.
They have a Blick brand tubed acrylic that comes in many colors with some quite vibrant.
I use with a mixture of distilled water to get the perfect consistancy.
The colors adhere well and the cleanup is easy.
No matter what type of paints I try, If I do not use Distilled water, I will not get the look I am looking for.
This seems to be the key to better controlling the paint.
I hope this helps.
