Marble Elegance Painting Technique

By:

All the beauty of real marble can be yours with this easy paint technique from Krylon. Try the marble painting technique on any home decor project!

Marble Painting Technique

Materials:

  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Black (#51602)
  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Blue Ocean Breeze (#51512)
  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Hunter Green (#52001)
  • Krylon Metallic Paints - Bright Gold (#1701)
  • Table Top or Project of your choice
  • Mineral spirits
  • Spray bottle
  • Disposable rubber gloves
  • Disposable plastic tub
  • Feather
  • Newspaper

Surface Preparation:

  • When working with unfinished wood, prepare your surface by sanding smooth and wiping clean with a tack cloth. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
  • When working with bare metal, be sure surface is free of rust and oil. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
  • When working with plastic, glass or ceramic, lightly sand surface with fine grain sandpaper and wipe clean with a tack cloth. This will help the paint to adhere better to these smooth surfaces. Apply a primer to further improve adhesion.

Steps:

  1. Place project on newspaper to protect work area.
     
  2. Spray several light coats of Ultra-Flat Black to cover top, bottom and sides of project. Let dry.
     
  3. Shake all paint cans to prepare to paint wet on wet.
     
  4. Spray one very heavy coat of Gold to cover entire top of project. Do not let dry.
     
  5. Spray overlapping spots of Blue Ocean Breeze, Hunter Green and Black over wet gold paint. Do not let dry.
     
  6. Spray mineral spirits over all the wet paint to cause reaction to paint.
     
  7. Use damp sea sponge to dab at paint to create mottled, marbled effect. Do not let dry.
     
  8. Wearing rubber gloves, spray Blue Ocean Breeze into disposable plastic tub to form a puddle of paint. Dip sponge into paint and dab lightly on project to enhance the marbled effect.
     
  9. Drag tip of feather through wet paint in very fine lines to create veins.
     
  10. For added protection of your finished project, spray several light coats of Krylon® Crystal Clear as a final step. For projects that will be used outdoors or near a window, use Krylon® UV-Resistant Clear.
