 More than often we are asked to fix up bad workmanship or sub-standard painting. We often have to quote against others in the painting trade that advertise that they can do the same work. These columns are a perfect example of two different Master Painter's marbling work. The latter being work done by Creative Colours. There is a vast difference in the quality of the preparation and painting. People often make the mistake of going for a cheaper price, but as the saying goes "You get what you pay for". Creative Colours spends time preparing the substrate to make it as blemish free as possible, this makes a big difference to the look of the finished product, and the finished columns in this example are a testament of excellent craftsmanship. They are a joy to look at and add value to the home.

The painting to this  Home Theatre Room has added so much value to the house by turning a plain room into a 'Feature Room'. Walls have been painted with a Four Tone French Wash, the columns have been marbled and the small panels have been marbled to match.. The Vaulted Ceiling has been hand painted with a beautiful night sky that you can stare at for ages! It changes depending on the lighting in the room and the clouds and stars look different from every angle.
