Experimenting with Magic Marble

I just ordered some Magic Marble paint and some EVA to test it it on. I've watched every YouTube video I could find, but have a few questions for anyone who has used it before that weren't covered in the videos I've watched.
On EVA, what, if anything, should I use to seal it?
I'm going to practice/test on black EVA using red, white, and blue Magic Marble...will those colors hold true on the black EVA? I ask because I'd like to try on carbon fiber grips if they do.
If I get as far as testing on carbon fiber grips, will PermaGloss affect the Magic Marble paint?
Thanks for any input!

Nearly everything I tried to seal it with caused issues. Perma gloss being one of the most aggressive. Looked like paint stripper.

you can use this it is water based and shouldn't react with the marbling paint

The inventor of the Magic Marble product and technique has written two extensive articles in RodMaker that walk you around any such trouble areas.

Hello Tom.

There were 6 articles about "Marbleizing", "Marbling", and "Mad Swirl" that I know of.

The first two were: V-7 / I-5 / Pg.18; "Marbleizing" By Mike Barkley, and V-7 / I-6 / Pg.10; "More Marbleizing" By Tom Kirkman.

The Second two were: V15 / I-4 / Pg.18; "Marbling Pigments" By Rick Anton, and V-20 / I-6 / Pg.14; "Advanced Marbling" By Nuno Paulino.

The Last two were:V-16 / I-4 / Pg.14; "The Mad Swirl", and V-20 / I-4 / Pg.16; "Advanced Mad Swirl" Both By Jeremy Reed.

Did I miss anything?

PermaGloss has a hot solvent that is going to be too much for most paints unless you seal the paint with something.

Thanks, Tom. I gathered that PG wasn't going to be the best overcoat for the Magic Marble over carbon fiber, so I'll keep my practice runs on EVA until I get a feel for it...simple economics! Thanks for your input! Your video on applying PG to carbon grips really made it easy to make them pop, and your input saved me a lot of grief!

I have never done any magic marbling, but do as you have posted, experiment! Since you will be practicing with EVA set up a couple of experiments where you magic marble some broken blank pieces and after they are completely dry coat them with Permagloss and see what happens. You may be pleasantly surprised. I remember being told I could not over coat calligraphy ink with Permagloss, it was just too hot! Well I went ahead and tried it and found that it overcoated just fine with absolutely no problems. Now when I write on blanks with calligraphy ink I over coat with Permagloss, it is much easier to use than epoxy. No mixing,only takes a few seconds, looks good, and is very durable. Do not give up before trying it. It’s the only way to know for sure.
