Basic Color Matching
for faux finishing
I know it has been a long time since I have posted anything and I apologize for my absence but I have been recently inundated with commissions and in a combination of getting the new studio up and running has left me overwhelmed and putting in some very long days….but this is a good thing! On top of that my camera mysteriously vanished into thin air and I had to purchase another one and now I should be back on track. With that being said I am way behind on posting so within the next few days I am going to try and play “catch up” so hang on to your hats and subscribe to my feed so as not to miss anything.
On this post, I would like to tell you all that I am back in producing my instructional DVD’s and my next one will be available soon and will be announcing that through my newsletter so be sure to subscribe. I will be producing a preview to it as I have done in the past with the Trompe Loeil FoilFantasy Marble, Tissue Finish, and my Base Painting DVD
In my “Amazing Accents” DVD Series my “Fantasy Marble” DVD was not only about a simple technique that I use to marbleize a column but was mainly developed to explain “color value”
For this next instructional DVD, I am going to explain more about “value” and will be using 3 colors
This is the beginning stage where I have already determined the colors and have started the process for my next DVD Fantasy Marble 2, Basic Color Matching. This is just one of my marbling commissions that I have recently gained
and there are many different ways to approach these types of finishes, but as I explained in my first DVD the most important part is learning the importance of color value to create a believable faux marble.
As you can see I have worked out the colors and started laying in the veining almost the same as “blocking in” when painting a mural or on canvas and by adding in different tones and high lights you can achieve a sense of realism by creating the volume and depth using color value
