A marble finish always looks elegant whichever form it takes, from kitchen islands to smaller ornaments such as candle holders. Painting your own marbled effect has become a hot trend of late, and the good news is that it’s so easy to create.
You will need:
Step one. Paint the candlesticks with a basecoat of Resene Bianca.
Step two. Taking the plastic tub, fill with water high enough to dip the candlesticks in.
Step three. Dip the paint brush into Resene Steam Roller and then touch it to the surface of the water in the tub. Because Resene Lusta-Glo is oil-based, the paint will disperse in the water.
Step four. Gently dip the candlesticks onto the surface of the water, and then into the water. Turn them slowly until they’re completely covered in the marble-like effect.
Step five. Bring out of the water and place onto a towel or cardboard to dry overnight.
Step six. Fill with candles and decorate your dinner table, mantelpiece or windowsill with these elegant candle holders.
