Marble Fauxs
     Fauxing non-marble things, like wooden columns, to look like marble is called Marbleizing. It's a very fun and creative- but intensive- process. We apply many layers of  different colors of paint to the piece so it all comes together to look like marble. Each marbleized piece we do is absolutely unique- even if we use the same colors, same techniques and even did the same finish the day before! Marbleizing truly brings out the artist in us because we are creating a piece of 'marble' from purely our own imagination.
     Marble fauxs are finishes we like to have a lot of client input on because we want our clients to absolutely LOVE the marbleized piece rather than feel it would be great if only that part was different. A perfect example are the marble columns with the wooden bases below: the one on the left has a brighter copper ribbon, while the one in the middle has a more antiqued look to the copper ribbon. They are the same column but the client had to make the call whether to leave the ribbon plain copper or antique it- she chose the antiquing!
