How to Make a White Veined Marble Countertop
White Striated Marble Recipe:
|White Metallic Powder||Diamond Dust Metallic Powder|
|White Spray Paint||Black Spray Paint||Copper Spray Paint|
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.
Step 2. Mix Your Secondary White Striated Marble Color Additives
Pour some of the white striated marble epoxy from your main bucket into your smaller buckets and then add your secondary additives into these smaller buckets and cups, mix with a stir stick, but don’t overmix to ensure as much realism as possible.
Step 3. Pour Out Your First Wash Coat
Thinly apply a wash coat to your project. We tint our wash coat completely opaque. Pour the tinted epoxy on the center of your project.
Step 4. Spread Your First Wash Coat
Use a mixing or paint stick to spread the first wash coat to evenly cover the board. Use your gloved hands to spread if you wish. This will ensure that our white veined marble texture will adhere to the piece correctly.
Step 5. Pour Your Second Wash Coat
Thinly apply your second wash coat to your project using a different tinted epoxy. Pour the tinted epoxy on the center of your project and use a gloved hand to spread.
Step 6. Add White Veined Marble Accent Colors
With your leftover epoxy add spray paint into the bucket and lightly mix to achieve the most natural white veined marble look possible.
Step 7. Pour Out Tinted Epoxy
Apply your tinted epoxy to your countertop by pouring directly onto your project out of the mixing cup. Overlap and layer the epoxy as desired. Pour out of a bucket, cup, to achieve the desired look.
Step 8. Enhance The Veined Marble Look with a Paint Stick
Using a paint stick, gently move across areas of interest to enhance the white veined marble color effects, use a torch or heat gun to meld those areas back together.
Step 9. Using Excess Epoxy to Increase Realism
With a gloved hand or paint stick, scoop up excess epoxy that has leveled off of the piece, and spread it over your epoxy project to achieve the ultimate realism.
Step 10. Melding Epoxy & Remove Bubbles
In a sweeping motion use a torch or heat gun to meld any epoxy effects as well as remove bubbles from your white striated marble epoxy project. At this point, your piece should look amazing and natural.
Step 11. Scrape The Drips
After about 2-3 hours your epoxy project should start to “jell up” at this point you can take a gloved hand or a paint stick to the bottom edge and gently scrape the epoxy drips until the underside is smooth to the touch.
