A bit of marbling

Updated: Sep 25, 2020

This mid Victorian fireplace has had a hard life having been painted over many times with one of the coats being a particularly unpleasant turquoise. It had also lost most of of the left hand side and the pilaster and inground had been recast using sand and cement.

The current house owner stripped it all back and got it to a condition where all the marble was visible but far from pristine. He asked me to paint this section to match the marble in its current state and was very happy with what I did. Painting a faux marble next to the real thing is a particularly difficult and tricky task.
