To create this subtle effect you will need the following items:
White, Cream or Gold and Dark Brown paint. You will also need 1 very fine brush and 1 ordinary sized brush. This effect unlike most of the other effects works successfully on smooth surfaces.
Give your chosen item an even coat of White paint. Then leave to dry.
Once the White paint has dried you need to start adding the veins of marble. Using the Gold paint and a fine brush apply thin lines that cross
each other over the white. Leave to dry for a few minutes but before it has completely dried you should using a large clean dry brush smudge the lines to soften the edges of the veins.
You should then repeat the process but this time use the cream paint as this adds depth to the marble detail.
Add the final touches with the fine brush and the Dark Brown paint tracing the veins that you have already painted. Once again use a dry brush to soften the lines. These processes should be repeated until the desired effect is achieved.
