yellow Sienna marble and Languedoc


Faux marble, especially combined with the 'trompe-l'oeil' technique makes a very impressive decorative statement and can be used in many ways to enrich your interior. Here a yellow Sienna marble is surrounded by four slabs of red Languedoc. The design is further enriched with a faux molding executed in 'trompe-l'oeil' technique.


Many layers of colors give a faux stone its richness of color and its depth. A final layer of oil glaze yields a strong lasting finish and the final stone-like polish. To perfect the illusion, the addition of 'trompe-l'oeil' creates even more depth.

Various type of stones can be re-created, from malachite to lapis-lazuli; in addition, unlike real stone, your choices are infinite: matching faux stone to your draperies is not a problem!


The mantel piece of this fireplace was originally painted with a textured off-white finish. It is now dressed-up in faux marble.
