On the marbling, it is my 'string effect' application. At the butt end it is hard and contrasty, and as you go toward the tip I softened the look. Basically I hit all the marbled wraps with heat to release any bubbles, and then all but the stripper, and then all but the stripper and the next guide, etc. With each light heat application the marbling flows, swirls, and softens a bit more.
