I saw the following on facebook and borrowed it. Work by Painty Cait and company apparently for the Professional Painter and Decorator magazine. Source: https://www.facebook.com/carteblanchede ... =3&theater

She is very good :-) Not that she is a neighbour of mine (a few miles away).

The most recent issue of the Professional Painter and Decorator has an article on marbling by paintycait. If I could get off my posterior perhaps I should try it on my doors.

I used to really enjoy faux decorative finishes but no one ever asks for them I only ever did my own pieces, all my old flogging brushes and feathers went in the bin a long time ago sadly.

A shame only decorators seem to know Decorator’s can do marbling, graining. Chuffing all sorts mostly forgotten and not even known by most.

It will all come back into fashion one day. Whether there will be anyone left who knows how to do it though is another matter. It will probably become an artisan skill all of it's own.

To be fair this sort of thing has been out of style for 20 years now. I must admit I never liked it as it was so obviously fake on metal garage doors and fireplaces where you knew it would probably not have been marble.

This is very weird, I haven't been on here for eons and decided this morning to sign in and see if it was still a busy forum, only to find this thread.
Very flattering.....OchAye, thank you.

Just to say this type of work is alive and thriving, bear in mind we keep 3 people busy full time doing only decorative work in a business based Perth and have had teams of up to 6 working most of last year. If I can keep a busy business going in rural Scotland then anyone can get at least some of this type of work. The biggest thing is that you have to show people it...if you don't show your customers that this type of thing exists, they'll never even know about it.
All my colleagues in similar businesses to ours are really so very busy with graining, marbling, gilding and other decorative finishes.....it's far from out of fashion. We run classes and the last two classes we had people come from London and the SE, Holland, Guernsey, Ireland as well as Scotland.

it is very much going that way but many of my colleagues are painters and decorators who have these skills that raise their profile and allow them to get bigger ticket work - restoration work etc.

Hi,

It is not easy to forget you as your name is permanently glued about 5 threads down on the front page of the P&D forum painting-decorating-forum-f6.html (the cutting in thread). Also I see your work on facebook so I thought it is nice to post something different to the usual how to strip wallpaper, which is the best/whitest/cheapest paint, why is my paint bubbling threads. That is all. Keep at it, it is a joy to see what can be done.

:-)

OchAye if you're in Perth pop in...we're just in Dunkeld Road.
I have to say I couldn't believe that thread was still pinned there. That's been there just a wee while.
We love what we do.... :occasion5:
