We pride ourselves on the rendition of marble and semi- precious stones. See our main page "faux marble" for further examples of the traditional art of marbleizing.
Inset photograph: an architectural urn with faux marble and gilded elements. The art of faux marble is a traditional specialist decorating technique, which having a long history of use is a fitting method for the recreation of historic and period interiors. Most marbles and semi precious stones can be successfully simulated using paint effects, and at the better end of craftsmanship are difficult to distinguish from the real material.
