Marbling Columns Berkshire: Our commission was to apply a fantasy marble paint effect to the columns around a pool so that they would blend in with the stone flooring. We were supplied with samples of the flooring so that we in turn could reproduce the effect for the architect. With the samples agreed and kit in tow it was time to start. Marbling columns Berkshire
Arriving at this fantastic private residence we could see how bland the columns looked against the stone flooring
We mixed a range of colours into clear Feelings Paint Effects which were in keeping with the stone flooring. We applied each glaze to the columns and with a wet sea sponge, broke the colour up and removed colour from some areas.
At this stage, we applied some of the lighter colours using the sponge and softened using a hogs hair softener. Once this was dry, we used an artist brush to apply some veining and this was softened using a hogs hair softener. Marbling columns Berkshire
Once the effect was completed, we then applied two coats of semi matte lacquer. Everything was cleaned up just in time for the client to enjoy a nice swim!
