Faux Marble Paint Effect Bath – Harrogate, North Yorkshire For this faux marble paint effect project I painted the outside of a roll top bath to match the real travertine floor beneath. The travertine effect is subtle and only has a few veins so as not to jar with the real travertine below. The walls were also painted with a pearlescent stripe paint effect which sparkles in candle light and really bring another dimension to the room. “Thank you very much for making such an excellent job of marbling my roll-top bath, definitely worth every single penny!!! I would have no hesitation...

Faux Marble Paint Effect Arch, Thorner, Leeds For this faux marble painting project I was based in the lovely village of Thorner, near Leeds. The client had been looking for a decorative solution for his archway for some time and whilst talking options over with a friend my name came up.

Faux marble work is one of my absolute favourite specialist paint effects to do, and after an initial phone conversation, I was eager to...
