I apologize in advanced if this is already covered somewhere in another thread or tutorial, but I didn't have any luck finding it.

Can anyone share their technique for getting a granite/marble finish? I'm looking to build an obelisk this year and those are usually smoother and more white than the finish you get with Drylock (well, the grey Drylock that I've got).

I was hoping someone had some tips they could share. I'm thinking white latex paint...maybe a little bit of black mixed in to tone down the stark whiteness (is that a word?). Maybe a *little* sand mixed in? Don't know that I would want to get the full-on grittiness of Drylock.

Any suggestions on how to get that marbling effect?

Thanks!!
Steve

ooo this is cool. When I did marbling for a tomb stone i just mixed a touch of black on the tip of a dry brush and lightly brushed it into the smooth drylok but i like this technique better!
