a fine mist is required. May also be used to apply protective coatings

Combs: Nonparell Bottom Comb
The bottom comb has "teeth" that drag along the bottom of the tank, thus creating a different nonpareil look. These have been used in marbling for centurys. These combs are made by a reed maker who puts his creative talent into each comb. I must thank Dan & Regina St. John at Chena River Marblers for all their time in findling such a talented reed maker. I have combs for either direction for small or large tanks. Other lengths or spacing can be special ordered.

Combs: Type 2 Comb for Bouquet/Peacock Pattern
Following a design published in Diderot Encyclopedia (1789), the

axis of the tank. Teeth are solid brass pins.
