Faux Marble Floor


Faux Marble is one of my favorite techniques to paint. Back in the early 1980’s it was very popular and my friend and mentor Robert Jackson was a master of it. I thoroughly paid attention to everything he did and asked A LOT of questions. I can not count how many faux marble floors, walls, and ceilings I have painted since then. 

This particular floor I painted in upstate New York at an 1820’s farm house that had very dark oak stained floors.The task at hand was to completely transform this entrance way. My clients asked for a very specific charcoal and white marble checkered floor pattern to uplift their entrance foyer.
