"How to Marbleize, The Art of Faux Marble"

stars by Video Librarian
(1991) 58 min. Middlebrook Enterprises. Public performance rights included.

Lance Middlebrook demonstrates the basics of "marbleizing" in this step-by-step guide which takes viewers through four projects. After a brief introduction, Middlebrook shows viewers how to create striking black marble, how to add a glaze to alter the look of the marble, and one type of "tortoise-shelling." Along the way, Middlebrook teaches surface preparation, mixing colors and glazes, application techniques, and finishing. An excellent one volume introduction for those who don't have The Finishing School's more comprehensive Professional Painted Finishers series (reviewed in the June 1992 issue). Highly recommended.
