White Marble Effects

Updated:2014-04-04 10:40:39

White marbleizing (or marbling) techniques help bring the elegance of white marble to furniture and walls without the equivalent cost. The artistic treatments used to create stunning likenesses of marble stone are commonly applied to furniture such as dressers and tabletops and painted onto walls. Closed-grain woods like birch, maple and pine hold up to marbleizing. Even though each faux finished project is unique, the timeless elegance depicted by the look of white marble is universally classical. 

                                                         

Soft White Marble Effect

This marbleizing technique is used to create a look of soft marble. Apply clear shellac or a tinted glaze base coat to a white surface and dab lightly with a sponge to give the surface a marble-like appearance. Before stone walls are marbleized, a minimum of two coats of primer is applied with a soft brush before painting on the glaze. This gives the stone walls a shiner, glassy look. Sometimes, a topcoat of varnish is put on for longer lasting results.

White Marble Veining Effect

To obtain a more dramatic effect, this marbleizing veining technique features black veins painted on. Oil colors are applied to the surface using either goose feathers or turkey feathers. Before the paint dries, the lines are dry-brushed to blend them in slightly. An alternate vein-making method is to make wrinkles and marble slab features by bunching up plastic wrap and pressing it onto the surface.

Combined Smooth Marble and Veining Effect

Incorporating the look of both clean, smooth marble and black veins, a white stain or paint is used along with a black stain or paint. All paints, wood stains and topcoats are water-based. Two coats of stain or furniture paint is applied and allowed to dry between coats. The furniture is then lightly sanded with a very fine foam sanding pad or number 320 grade sanding pad to obtain a smoother surface.
