Marbling requires true craftsmanship to realistically recreate the characteristics of marble and stone, highlighting the subtleties and details of these beautiful materials.
There is evidence of marbling techniques being used for murals in Ancient Rome, with the Italian masters further honing this delicate art during the Renaissance period.
Marbling allows the use of cheaper building materials, which are then painted. It’s also ideal for situations where it would be impossible to use the genuine article, such as for doors.
