Step 1. Add & Mix Veined Marble Additives

To achieve our desired white veined marble design we’ll begin by adding metallic powders, epoxy dyes, and spray paints directly to your mixing buckets. Mix thoroughly with a mixing stick this will be used as a wash coat and a baseline for your secondary colors.
