For the fifth episode of our podcast, we invited a marbler from Saint Petersburg, Russia. Katy Ebru showed us several marbling patterns right during the recording - you can see them in the first part of the video. This part is dedicated to Q&A.

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?
