Step 1: Use a paint roller to apply Easy Street One Step Paint. Apply two thin coats and let it dry.
Step 2: Create Your Glaze
Take Bauhaus Buff One Step Paint, Glazed Over, and Water. Mix one third of Bauhaus Buff One Step Paint, one third Glazed Over, and one third water. This will be your scumble, the scumble is the white area in the marble that makes it look like stone!
Step 3: Apply Your Scumble
Take a sea sponge - dip it in water, rinse it out, then dip it in your glaze. Start applying your glaze in a hit drag motion creating organic patterns all over your surface. Constantly move your sponge around and leave open areas - no snakey patterns! Take a lint-free rag and spread your glaze on the outside of your patterns. Keep repeating this small section by small section - working from upper left to lower right.
Step 4: Make and Apply Your Black Glaze
Take Black One Step Paint, Glazed Over, and Water - use one part of each to create a glaze. Using a sponge brush - completely cover your surface. Apply it organically in X motions, not in lines. Work quickly so it doesn't dry!
Next, use a very fancy tool - a garbage bag! Pounce the garbage bag all over your surface and watch how your finish transforms. Be sure to use different areas of the garbage bag so that it remains a negative tool and not a positive tool. Let it dry!
Step 5: White Veining
Take your Scumble Glaze and cut it in half then add 2-3 parts water. We want a very thin glaze for our veining. Take your turkey feather and load it up with your glaze, be sure to offload. Start in the upper left working towards your lower right.
Lay the turkey feather down, move it up, and work it so that you are only using the tip now.
Continue, moving your feather, picking it up, and moving it down. Create various organic patterns with the feather. Move your wrist more than anything else.
Be sure to add in a vein going in the opposite way. This will add to your composition. Pat some of your veins with a lint-free rag so they are lighter. Let it dry!
Step 5: Over glaze
Take your Black Glaze and thin it out with water. You want to add another part of water. Completely cover your surface, then take a lint-free rag, make a pad with it, and pat your glaze. This sets your veins back so they are not too stark.
Step 6: Seal
It's your choice on how you want to seal your marble. We recommend Bright Idea Lacquer for a high sheen finish - use about three coats. For a completely Matte finish, use our Matte Sealer.
