Marble Faux Finishes in the Bathroom

I know that it has been quite a while since I have posted. I have been taking a bit of a break due to our new baby arriving. I now have 3 small children under the age of 4, so I have been quite busy. Thanks to all of you for you for your patience.

I have 3 blogs now that I am managing. My plan is to post in all of them at least once a week, so please check them out and add them to your blog lists.

I have posted pictures of the new baby on both the Surfaces with Paint blog and the Nursery blog. Be sure to stop by and leave your comments. :)

Now to the good stuff - Marble Faux Finishes in the bathroom!

There are an unlimited number of marbles available on the market. That also means there are an unlimited number of marble faux finishes that can be done with paint and glaze.

Marbling (or Marbleizing) is a process of layering paint & glazes over a plain colored base coat. Many different tools can be used to manipulate the glaze such as wool, rags, cheese cloth, feathers, and even brushes.

As you can see in real marble, the veining usually goes in a certain direction. Most marble wall finishes will follow a diagonal direction.

Marble is a fun faux finish to do, because you can use any color and any combination of colors to match the decor of your bathroom.
