Marbling – The ability to make paint look like Marble is a very skilled and time consuming process but has the advantage that it allows for a consistency of tone and colour impossible to source naturally.
The correct amount of veining using precisely graded pigments is painted onto the surface to create a perfect copy of the type of marble required. A variety of sable brushes; natural sponges and even feathers are used in the process.
If you have an area of your home which would benefit from this technique and create a real talking point, Carnegie Decorators can help and can offer you a finished result which is on a par with the leading artisans in the industry.
Graining – Picking up the knots in pine, the twists and turns of the grain; the feathering of mahogany and the creation of rich faux bois with five over-glazes are all part of this craft, carried out by Carnegie Decorators. Stephen Candlish can create grains which are virtually indistinguishable from genuine timber and can create a new look for many rooms in the house such as libraries, studies, dining rooms and kitchens.
