This is the final part (see part 1, part 2) of my Japan visit. I’m finishing up the 3 marble columns with a fairly simple overglazing step. Finishing with a few coats of acrylic gloss varnish. Lastly, I made some quick white marble panels for Moo.
Step 3: Use a transparent glaze break up the fissures from step 2. My new favorite brush is the samina, 3-headed brecher for marble. You can also use a 2 headed brecher for the same effect. Soften the veins. I used a rag to wipe off the marks that were beyond the fissures.
After 2 coats of water gloss varnish
The white marble project: Moo gave me these 3 panels that will be placed behind glass. Sorry, the light is not great in these shots.
Last stop at a paint store – kind of like a home depot. Japanese spalters
So many tapes to choose from- concrete to delicate.
