Hand painted marble can be applied to metal, glass, stone, drywall, particle board, wood and many other surfaces. Preparation of the substrate must be at a level V, flawlessly smooth finish for best results. The craftsmen at André can provide this surface preparation if needed. Base color specifications are typically made per each specific marble type. Final surface durability can be met by architectural surface specification or by simply letting the craftsman know what the intended use is. Cost can vary depending on project scope but hand painted marble typically ranges from $35-$65 per square foot.
