The mix makes it! - Marble technique is created when mixing several wall colors.
We wanted to make a wall varied, which should give a rather small room a special character and a special coziness. It should become a rest and music room in a holiday home, except for one or two sofas, the music system and a multimedia PC, on which you can view photos and watch TV, the room should not contain much. I asked my friend Maria how she made her colorful wall, this wall changes in different colors and looks really great. She said that this is called marble technique and gave me a detailed guide that I would like to share here:
- The marble technique arises when several wall colors are mixed. Marble technique is called this wall application, because the colors run like lime deposits in a marble stone, which causes a plastic effect.
- For this purpose, several colors are applied to a wall, the basic colors form, so to speak, the normal stone color, which is indeed never evenly held in one color. Then the veins come in, which can be applied in a little different tints or in a slightly stronger tone of the primary colors.
- Let's say you want to marry a wall so that the result is like a real wall of light marble. Then you first need emulsion paint that has been tinted in beige, a delicately reddish beige, light yellow, and slightly stronger taupe (a mix of beige and gray).
- The tinting of the colors already determines the later effect of the wall, you should experiment here for a while with the most different tinting colors and "marbled" again and again a white sheet of paper, to see if the result suits you. Since I do not like yellow, I would also get the light yellow tone a shot of gray, so that the yellow is not so dominant.
- You begin to color the wall over the entire surface by dipping a natural sponge in the beige color and dabbing the wall with it. The white background should not completely disappear, how much white you still see is a matter of taste. Now comes the tender reddish beige tone, again a part of the remaining white area is colored by dots. Then comes the third color on the wall, in this case the bright yellow.
- During this work, you should always step back from the wall to check the effect. Very ordinary natures tend to want to bring all three colors to the wall in even distribution and even proportions, and work for a long time on such a result. But marble is not like that, here you should rather restrain every striving for perfection in terms of uniformity (= uniformity) and / or guide you through other inspiring music at work.
- Finally, the veins that belong to each marble are painted. It's best to get into the image search of a Marble search engine and see what marble veins look like, then you'll get an idea of what you want to put on the wall here. A good way to do this is to simply tear off a piece of wrapping paper as much as possible by hand and place it on the wall, then dab along the edge with the sponge dipped in the taupe paint. These wires can then be blurred with a damp sponge, for example, if a vein is too concise or too dark.
My friend immediately recommended several methods of wall design to choose from: wiping technique, wrapping technique, stencil painting, for which you can make the stencils yourself or glaze. Let's see, until the spring I have time for the decision.
