Painted faux marble dates back to the Renaissance, when sculptor Michelangelo
was the hot artist of the day. Apprentices shadowed a master faux
painter for years before working on their own, and highest honors
went to painters who could trick observers into believing their faux
marble was the real thing.
Fortunately, with the products available today it takes minutes, not
years, to learn the basics of faux-marble painting. With our step-by-step
directions even novice painters can successfully recreate the timeless
look of the world’s classiest stone. The result is a high-end
look for not a lot of money.
