Abstract: A method for creating a faux finish on a surface using an apparatus (100) that has a dual roller handle (110), a pair of roller covers (120, 124) each mounted for independent rotation, and at least one raised foam pattern (122, 126) on each roller cover. In one embodiment, the raised foam pattern is a nonrepresentational design (136) that is sized, shaped and positioned on each roller cover to create smoothly contoured edges (137) and a non-uniform gap (135) between adjacent edges of the raised foam pattern. When two paints having at least one different visually perceptible characteristic are respectively applied to the surface by the roller covers using the handle in an overlapping and arcing motion, a faux marble finish results from the effect of the edges of the raised foam pattern on the paint discharged to the surface by the raised foam pattern. In another embodiment, the raised foam pattern is a representative design that is used in the same manner to provide a faux texture finish.
Abstract: A method of continuously producing a continuous paint coat of substantially constant, pre-determined thickness, and displaying a plural colour, familial, non-modular pattern, on a surface of a moving substrate, comprising the steps of depositing at least two discontinuous, randomly patchy, differently coloured, component paint deposits, at a predetermined, constant, long term deposition rate for each component deposit in terms of the volume of paint per unit area of the surface, within a single stationary target area of the surface, or within stationary target areas of the surface respectively associated with the component deposits and at least partly aligned in the direction of movement of the substrate, and thereafter spreading and smoothing the component paint deposits carried by the substrate from the target area or areas, to form the continuous coat.
Abstract: Apparatus, kit and method for painting a marbleized pattern on an essentially flat interior surface using paints with a plurality of colors. Before beginning the process, if necessary, the surface is cleaned and prepared. This can include applying masking tape around the periphery of the area to be painted. Splotches of paint of one color are then applied to a portion of the total area to be painted using a stiff bristled brush. Splotches of other paint colors are then applied interspersed with the previous colors. The brush is then used to preliminarily blend the various splotches of paint. A special blending tool faced with wool is used to complete blending the paint. The wool face is moistened before use, and blending is completed by patting the paint with the wool face of the tool while changing the angles and locations of the tool between each contact. Accent veining lines can be added to the blended paint surface using a feather dipped into a paint of a different color than the blended surface.
Abstract: A method of using compositions and kits for preparing a marbleized coating on the surface of a sheet or object involves floating multiple color coating materials on the surface of water and dipping the sheet or object directly into this two phase liquid system. The color coating forms its own design on the water surface and does not need to be moved around. The resulting sheet or object is coated with a marbleized coating which is flexible and permanent. The water is conditioned with cream of tartar prior to carrying out the coating method.

Abstract: A method of using compositions and kits for preparing a flexible and permanent marbleizing coating on the surface of an object involves conditioning water with borax and testing the water, floating multiple color paints on the surface of the conditioned water, and dipping the object directly into this two phase liquid system. The color coating forms its own design on the water surface and does not need to be moved around. Small articles such as glitter, powders, beads, flakes, and fibers may be applied to the coated object before the paint dries or to the paint floating on the water. The coating may be transferred from the object to a second object by contacting these objects immediately after the dipping.
Abstract: Faux finishes are produced without need for artistic manipulations of coating materials by applying a layer of one or more unique color mixtures to a substrate surface and, while the layer is still wet, applying thereto scattered portions of one or more special blending solvent mixtures, allowing such portions to interact with the color mixture layer to automatically form a faux finish pattern and then allowing the resulting faux finish to dry. The color mixtures have the following weight percentage composition: 20%-60% acrylic latex, 20%-60% propylene glycol, and 1%-60% colorant. The blending solvent mixtures have the following weight percentage composition: 10%-30% isopropyl alcohol, 10%-30% ethylene glycol monobutyl ether, 30%-60% water, and 5%-30% acrylic latex.

Abstract: A method is disclosed for an improved process for coating a substrate with a marbleized polyester coating. The substrate is prepared for adherence by a polyester material. The substrate is coated with a first colored polyester material. A second colored polyester material is deposited onto selected area of the first colored polyester material prior to the curing of the first colored polyester material. The first and second uncured polyester materials are reciprocally rolled with a fibrous roller to blend the second colored polyester material into the first colored polyester material to produce the marbleized polyester coating.
Abstract: Imitation marble or like faux finishes are produced without need for artistic manipulations of coating materials, by applying random portions of one or more different aqueous colorant mixtures to the color absorbent surface of a substrate, while such random portions are still wet, applying thereto scattered portions of an activator solution of a small amount of water-insoluble volatile organic liquid, e.g., mineral spirits, dissolved in a water-miscible alcohol, e.g., isopropyl alcohol, allowing such scattered portions to act upon the random colorant mixture portions to automatically move them into a faux finish pattern, and then allowing the resulting faux finish pattern to dry. Aqueous colorant mixtures so used each contain a major amount of water and minor amounts of colorant and, selectively, detergent and/or water-miscible alcohol.
Abstract: Dressed materials for interior finish, the base material being wood, metal, resin, paper or glass, having a mixed pattern on the surface formed by a mixture of undercoating of water paint, or a mixture of water paint and oil paint, and overcoating having a nature different from that of the undercoating. Dressed materials resembling natural materials having a natural feeling of taste and pattern such as, marbling, a pattern of granite or the like are obtained.
Abstract: A method is described for producing a faux finish on a substrate having a non-porous surface, such as metal, by applying a coating of wet paint to the surface of the substrate moving at a substantially constant rate, immediately non-uniformly spattering the surface wit a mixture of paint solvent and protective coating, such as lacquer and lacquer thinner, and inducing the wet paint to flow randomly on the surface before drying, thereby creating a faux finish protected by the coating.
Abstract: A process for covering a substrate with a textured simulated marble surface and the resulting product. Cement and sand are mixed to form a first mixture to which is added an aqueous solution of an adhesive resin such as an acrylic resin to create a mortar. The mortar is spread on the substrate and one or more color pigments are added to the surface at randomly-spaced locations prior to the complete curing of the mortar. Air is blown onto the surface of the mortar and serves to blend the color pigments into the mortar and into each other. As the air stream moves across the surface of the mortar, color patterns are formed.

In the process, cement and sand are mixed to form a first mixture to which is added an aqueous solution of an adhesive resin such as an acrylic resin to create a first mortar. The cement and sand are mixed to form a second mixture to which is added an aqueous solution of an adhesive resiin such as an acrylic resin to create a second mortar. A contrasting pigment is added to one of the first and second mortars or to each of the mortars. The first mortar is applied over the entire substrate. The second mortar is applied onto randomly spaced portions over the previously applied first mortar prior to the complete curing of the first mortar to form a unitary textured covering. The textured unitary coating includes a lower layer and an upper layer with the upper layer comprising the second mortar and the lower layer comprising the first and second mortar.
Abstract: A method for providing a painted marbleized finish on an exposed wall or ceiling surface, or other exposed surfaces, specifically through the use of an applicator structure dimensioned and configured to apply, in a cooperative manner, first a base coat preferably of paint and secondly an accent coat of paint of a clearly distinguishable and contrasting color. The applicator is further used to accomplish a blending procedure of the accent coat and base coat with one another on the exposed surface being painted in a manner which will affect the visual appearance of natural marble on the surface being painted.
Abstract: Hard, durable, water-resistant simulated marble products are made by coating a support surface with a mixture of epoxy resin, epoxy resin hardener, pigment and a powdered material such as portland cement, powdered clay, a mix of portlant cement and lime, powdered lime, a mix of portland cement and silica sand or mixtures thereof. After the coating is applied a water-based acrylic polymer with pigment or pigments of selected color is applied with a brush or similar means in selected areas and then troweled or feathered to give the desired marbleizing effect. The product is then allowed to harden. The resultant product is hard, durable, water-resistant, easily washable and resembles marble.
Abstract: A cementitious slab first has generally straight intersecting lines drawn thereon and the surface of the slab is thereafter cut in order to form narrow shallow grooves therein extending along the previously drawn lines. The entire upper surface of the slab is then washed with an acid wash, neutralized and then pressure washed. A first stain coat is then evenly applied to the upper surface of the slab including the grooves and a second stain coat is thereafter applied to at least some of the discrete areas of the upper surface of the slab in an uneven manner with the second stain being darker than the first stain to thereby render a mottled appearance to the upper surface of the slab. Thereafter, the entire upper surface of the slab including the grooves may be sealed.

The cement and sand are mixed to form a second mixture to which is added an aqueous solution of acrylic resin to create a second mortar. A contrasting pigment is added to one of the first and second mortars. The first mortar is applied over the entire substrate. The second mortar is applied onto randomly spaced portions over the previously applied first mortar prior to the complete curing of the first mortar to form a unitary textured covering. The textured unitary coating includes a lower layer and an upper layer with the upper layer comprising the second mortar and the lower layer comprising the first and second mortar.
Abstract: In the production of a decorative sheet, a synthetic resin paste is first applied onto the upper surface of a substrate sheet to form an undercoat layer. Then, one or more pastes, each being of the same material and having approximately the same viscosity as the paste of the undercoat layer, are laterally sprayed so as to drop onto the undercoat layer. The result is a smoothing phenomenon, with the pattern layer cooperating with the undercoat layer to form a smooth patterned surface. Finally, the pattern layer is heated and jelled.
Abstract: A method for producing a painting using a flotation process in which a floating elongate member is placed in a shallow pan of water and one or more oil based litho inks having different viscosities are placed on the surface of the water within the closed shape of the elongate member. Using an external force such as an air stream, the litho ink is formed into a desired pattern on the surface of the water and it is allowed to float undisturbed by external forces for a time lapse of about six to fourteen hours to form a textured pattern having finer and more textured paint globules than when the paint was first blown into a desired pattern. The paint pattern is lifted off of the surface of the water and onto a flexible sheet, and after the paint is at least partially dried, artists non-oil base ink is applied to the flexible sheet within the closed shape of the painting to areas of the sheet on which paint is not present.
Abstract: A method of producing artistic effects on thin layer chromatography plates is shown and described.

Abstract: A method of decorating material for example paper consists of superimposing one marbled pattern on top of another marbled pattern. The marbled patterns are produced by floating and combining marbling ink on the surface of a bath of size solution. The upper marbled pattern consists of linear regions of ink formed by interspersing ink with transparent expanding agent on the surface of the size bath so that the ink is confined by the compressive effect of the expanding agent, thus the pattern is in outline only. The ink and expanding agent are applied to the surface of the size bath using a specially constructed frame comb.
Abstract: A natural stone panel is constructed from rectangular sheets, slabs or blocks of natural stone, particularly marble or onyx and constructed by placing an array of rectangular stone blocks on a work surface, placing a fiberglass backing on the upper surface of the array, applying an adhesive, which can have a stone dust filler, to the joints between adjacent blocks, on the blocks and on the fiberglass backing, which is rolled into contact with the blocks. After hardening or curing of the adhesive, the exposed stone block surfaces can be polished, an overlay of clear plastic applied to the surface of the stone blocks, and the panel edges trimmed with a suitable cutting tool. The panels formed can be wall mounted by a suitable adhesive bonding the fiberglass backing to the wall surface, or alternatively, the panels can be adhesive bonded to a floor surface.
