Faux Finishing and Marbling is still one of my favorite things to do
and I have just finished another faux marble on columns for a client and as a result I have more coming up.
Below is a progression photo that I took to study the color values
I use my blog quite often to keep my clients and artist friends up to date on things that I am doing or working on. Usually I get emails with questions but I also love to see them placed under the comments so I can share with everyone.
Feel free to leave a comment which you can find below at the bottom of the post
Although this is a fantasy marble technique I based it somewhat on a rare marble known as “Yellow Flower”. The main difference is the warm white veining was left out by request and a couple of other details, but no matter I still get so involved with it that I feel I become part of the faux marble itself.
Most times I get so involved that I am able to shut out everything around me
People will try to talk to me but I really don’t hear what they are saying because I am so focused on what I’m doing
Some look at me pretty strangely when I tell them this but you have to understand that an artists work is an extension of themselves and like marble we all have our individuality because there are never 2 that are the same
I love music when I am marbling and prefer instrumental music like
Chicago, Dave Mathews Band, Spyro Gyra,
but sometimes it depends on my mood as well.
I appreciate all music and have everything from country to classical and I am always looking for more. I believe everyone is an artist to some extent and music brings the best out of all of us. It doesn’t matter what you do, weather you love to write poems, paint, sculpt, quilting what ever, to me music is an integral part of what we all do in life even a stay at home mom who home schools her children express themselves in some creative way.
So what do you do? What kind of music do you listen to?
Leave a comment below and share it with us I would love to get more music
Last an not Least I’ll finish this entry with a final close up to see if I can move some of you to answer with some music suggestion
In the next couple of days I will be posting another
