Create the appearance of marble in a fraction of the cost with a faux-finishing technique. Choose your colors depending on the type of marble you wish to recreate, such as white, gray and black for a standard white marble or a combination for a different variant. Use faux marbling methods to make a”fantasy” marble, with supernatural marble colours such as indigo or green.
Cover the work area with paper. Put the project piece atop the newspaper, or, even if you’re painting on a wall or a large object, place the paper onto the bottom up against the area.
Sand the project surface to scuff the finish a little up. Wipe away the dust with a soft cloth. Sanding makes the surface more responsive to paint. Wipe down the wall with a dustcloth or feather duster instead, if you’re painting a wall.
Cover all areas you wish to protect with painter’s tape.
Open and stir the primer and then pour some of it into a paint tray. Brush the primer over the project surface and allow it to dry thoroughly. Apply another coat if the original surface is observable allowing it to wash.
Open and stir the foundation marble colour, pouring it into a paint tray. Brush the paint over the entire project surface and allow it to dry.
Mix a glaze in a container using a marble colour and half as much latex glaze; for instance, make a somewhat gray glaze for marble by mixing white latex paint with glaze and only a little black paint.
Dip a sea sponge to the glaze mixture and blot it over the base-coated project. Feather the wet shade bands a bit or feathering brush; this makes the marble look more natural. Produce a optional thinner color rings by pushing a paintbrush and dragging it in a somewhat wavy line within the undertaking.
Pour a bit of the marble strand colour into a container and 1/3 or 1/4 as glaze, stirring them. Dip the tip of a feather or a fine artist’s brush to the glaze and drag it gently across the faux marble finish in irregular lines. While the previous paint coating is dry or wet the veining may be performed; the veins will probably blend in a bit more, but extra care is needed not to rest your hands on the wet paint, when completed while moist.
