Faux Marble Ceilings - Marblizing Techniques
Some of the most delightful surfaces are inspired by marble, and "marble like" stones. Urban Revivals can create faux marble, tortoise shell, and lapis lazuli surfaces. These techniques are suitable for furniture, wall panels, columns, moldings, and doors. For ceilings, we prefer lighter and lightly grained marbles finished in a matte varnish
Selection of Base, Glaze, and Grain colors
Faux finishing brushes are long and wavy. Apply finishes softly to spread glazes.
