Experimenting on making the top to look a little like marble, with practice it will get better.
So far this is what I have done.
painted the top a satin white first
I just dabbed white then grays and white again until I got it looking like I wanted
I see that sanding is needed to make a smoother finish
I used a feather from a feather duster because that is what I had, not the greatest and resorted back to using a skinny paint brush to do the lines. Painting the lines would have looked much nicer if I had glaze to mix with the paint. I will make sure I have that the next time.
well back to finishing and hopefully post it here this week when its done.
Need to soften some lines on the top I see.
