Marble Hearth


"Marble" Hearth with fireplace & mantle. 

I watched a tutorial but there was too much mixing and I ended up with hardly any veins. Operator error no doubt. :D  So essentially I just loosely mixed pearl, silver & translucent clay. Then separately I loosely mixed white with a small amout of black. Then I rolled everything in a ball and then made snake ropes, by rolling it out into a long snake, folding and then twisting it like a corkscrew. then back into a ball, roll out and cut to size. Much simpler! :bangin:
