Marbling or marble finish has been quite popular for a long time. This type of finish requires true craftsmanship because it needs creating the natural effect of a marble on a surface which is not marble. In other words, a marble effect can be created on any surface by cleverly painting it by hand exactly like the natural stone. This has been a technique adopted since centuries.

Marbling also comes in handy when you want to create the impression of a marble, however, would rather not pay the price of it. This also works in situations where incorporating a marble might not be possible, however, that’s what you’d rather have to create the right aesthetics.
