Very cool. Sounds like the store alone will be a work of art!
Yeah that's what I'm shooting for but its costing so much I'll have to do it in stages.
Did you use a dagger brush?
May I critique a bit? Having done many a faux finishes for set pieces...your graining is too "regular" to be truly convincing of real marble. If you can, use a long and soft feather and as you draw a line for a vein twist it in your hands. Also, don't make them look too even...it kind of looks like stripes. Other than that I love the effect! I think it will look great! (If I could make a trip to TX, I'd totally offer to help paint...I love faux finishing, especially stone and marble)
Hey, long time no talk. Yeah it'll be done that way, this is just a first test on a small board and I know I've got a lot of practice to do. I could use some info on what sort of products I should be using. In my research I've turned up some conflicting info. A lot talk about glazes of which I have never used. And some say to paint a primer coat, then a basecoat, paint a sealer coat, then vein, then another sealing coat, and I don't know what products I'm going to need yet. If you know that'd cut down on some research time. Toss me a note sometime if you're willing to talk with me about it (or for quicker response Samuel@PrinceArmory.com)
That is so cool! I've used sponges to mimic a stone texture, but you've gone way beyond that!
Pretty snazzy! Would look good on armour, too.
