20:10 - Question from Janet Mente: Some days when I am marbling, things just do not work. I know there is a German book by a 19th-century marble entitled in translation "My struggle with Oxgall" so I know these things happen.
So my question is: what do you do on those days? Do you give up? Start from scratch? Or try to fix the mix and, if so, how?
