I could be wrong here, I'm trying to remember some advice from a long time back. Is it that you paint the base colour, then get the colour of the rest of the marble, take most of it off the brush (like drybrushing) and then instead of dragging it over the model make little circles by rotating the brush. Like you're trying to drill into the model. Called "Stippling" I think.

There are some details on how to paint marble in the =][= rulebook, it is used for Inquisitor Eisenhorns scroll cases, fins a frind with the book or dowload the living rulebook.
Basically I paint marble as follows:
1 paint the base coat
2 paint lines on using a darker shade of the final line colour, obveously th lines are random, just wander over the surface
3. using progressively lighter colours and less paint repaint the lines so that you can see the earlier colour around the edges, as you get to the lightest colour dont even paint all the lines
4. wash with ink of the colour of the lines
You can reverse this for darker lines on a lighter background
you can use paint on Hardstuff to coat the marble surface after you have varnished the whole model
hope that helps
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Chere's instructions seem the most intelligible here, but Mojo's are the simplest. Does anyone have a compromise method for painting marble? I want to do a coffin/sarcophogus with a dark blue/grey marble but haven't the foggiest idea how. I'm not concerned with Golden Demon quality, just tabletop worthy. Any suggestions?
I actually discovered (for myself at least) a technique for simulating marble that produces the most convincing marble effect that I have ever seen. It takes some stuff that in my experience is odd for mini painting, but junk that most of us probably have or can easily snatch from somewhere.
I first tried this for a terrain piece I was doing, and then adapted it for smaller things, like shields and bases. Anyway...
It takes a dry sponge, preferably an old one that is in really bad shape. The older, the better. From here, I'll break it into steps:
1) Prepare the sponge for use as a painting instrument. For smaller things like shields and bases or the actual body of a mini, you will naturally need a very small amount of sponge. Dice off a strip of sponge appropriately sized for what you are painting. For what the original poster would like to do, I would suggest cutting a piece approximately twice the width of a 0/2 paintbrush, and about 3-5 inches long--the length only needs to be long enough for you to easily handle the sponge strip.
1.a) If possible, I strongly suggest wrapping some duct or electrical tape around the sponge strip, leaving 1/4 to 1/2 inches of sponge exposed at the end of the strip. If you don't have any tape on hand, this will still work fine, but you will have to take extra care as the sponge strip will be unwieldy. If you want a long(sort of) lasting "spongebrush," tape the strip onto the wooden end of one of your brushes.
2) Cut, tear and stab the exposed end of your sponge strip (or whatever end happens to be your favorite should you not have any tape until it takes on a spiky, uneven shape. Be careful not to abuse the end to where it comes away from the strip, but bold enough to make it into as spiky and misshapen as possible. This step will determine how realistic your final marble effect will look.
3) Now you paint. I would suggest a basecoat of black, white bone, or any shade of gray. I suppose there are a few browns that would work, but experiment at your own risk. Apply your basecoat evenly and completely.
4) The effect: For the marbelling effect I have used greens, reds, black (over white basecoat), purple and blue. It's important that you choose a color that will strongly contrast with your basecoat--any color that contrasts strikingly will do. Once you have chosen your color, thin it 1:5 thinner:paint.
Saturate the spongebrush with your color, and dab it onto a sheet of paper. I would suggest looking at a photo on the internet or home decor magazine depicting marble to get a feel for the spacing between the different series of patterns. Once you have a feel for the pattern your brush leaves, you can move on to the miniature. Resaturate your brush, dab off the excess, and begin. Be careful not to stroke with the sponge--you only want to place it on the surface of your mini, and lift it straight off. Your pattern can be as dense or sparce as you'd like, but you will want to be careful to leave plenty of your contrasting basecoat exposed. Once you are satisfied with your pattern, you can highlight by adding a little white to your second color, but this isn't always necessary.
I really like the effect that I get with this technique. I tend to like the high contrast approach described here, but I have tried this with more complimentary tones and some have turned out well.
I hope this helps
