Marbling

Along with graining (see above) this is the other great discipline of the decorative artist, and the acid test by which they are judged.

The techniques are more alchemy than chemistry. Amazing super-natural effects will be learned by manipulating transparent glazes to create deep, glassy, fractured stone effects and veining that can withstand the even the closest scrutiny.

Learn how marble is formed, cooked deep within the planet for millions of years and how they adopt their color depending on their geography. We will also visit a local marble supplier to see full slabs up close and we start to decipher how to reproduce any stone a client wishes.

We will produce our own exhibition panels of:

  • Vert da mare
  • Fiore da Pesco
  • Classic white vein
