Foto Flo is a product that works like ox gall but is not ox gall. Any photo
store sells it. All it is is Glorified detergent, but I have used it very
successfully when marblizing paper, and I havn't yet tried detergent
(dish). Any kind of red seaweed, boiled is supposed to work for a marble
size. I have used dulse as it grows near me. Anything that thickens the
water will work to some degree. Cornstarch, flour, methyl cellulose, wall
paper paste. I've even used that stuff they sell for making jelly bcause it
has carageenan in it (another red seaweed used in lots of foods.)
