To help make veining easier, buy a marble tile. It will help you better visualize what the veins really look like. Veins in marble usually run on a diagonal and they look like they are under water – slightly blurry. I used my tiles as my guides.
I noticed that one person on Pinterest uses a feather, instead of a brush, but you can also use a piece of cardboard to paint the veins in the faux painted marble.
This is the coolest DIY project! I just love the way the Ikea table I painted turned out! This is so easy, you won’t believe it. I’m seriously thinking about doing the countertops, in my kitchen, this way. Marble is so expensive and I’m on a budget right now. My countertops need some serious upgrading, so I think I’ll do this in the meantime!
