Marbled Columns…. Who doesn’t Love to View, Touch and Ponder the movement of various marbles.
Capturing the color tones, the depth and how the veining intertwines… layers around each other, curling, moving and hiding is truly a “Visual Feast” for the eyes!
The Historic Art and Techniques of Marbling – From the the very first day of marbling, I knew this was going to be an Art that I would love for many years!
David and I, have had alot of fun with columns through the years. But there are many challenges, such as determining the best top coat to seal, protect and enhance the marbling. This seems like a simple decision, but there are many options available, but not all will create the effect or depth you are looking for.
Also, when you discover a marble movement and layering that you Love and then trying to recreate this movement with a brush or trowel, is not always easy.
But it’s all part of the Passion and Love, learning this remarkable historic Art.
Through history, there have been a variety of methods and perspectives on how to approach the Art of Marbling.
The most famous are the Italian Style and the French Style.
At Bella Faux Finishes we specialize in both styles, many times, combining their techniques to create a Unique Marble Finish.
The Artisan Tools that we use:
(1) Trowel – Italian Venetian Plaster or Italian Finishes. Both of these methods can create a real marble finish or textured marble finish by painting with a trowel.
(2) Variety of Brushes – Here you have more freedom to create a variety of effects. We have many different brushes and Artisan tools to move and create magic with a dab of paint…
