Marbling

Would you like a few marble columns or a room paneled in exotic wood? Those things are expensive — unless you use faux finishes.


These painted look-alikes are dramatic yet inexpensive -- because they are done with only paint. These illusions, from age-old techniques of wood graining, marbling, glazing, daubing and sponging, have been handed down from generation to generation of fine furniture craftsmen and artistic interior decorators.



The main difference between glazing and marbling is that to simulate a real marble or stone in paint one must consider visual textures and realistic placement of the various masses, drifts, and lines (veins) of color.

In some cases, all that is necessary to render a marble or stone is to manipulate the glaze in a specific direction. For example, the strié technique can be used to produce the fine lines so characteristic of banded malachite, and strié and rag-rolling techniques can be combined to render travertines.
