Marbles . . .

Loosing and and finding them can be fun.

It was time to replace our front hall table. We combined a treadle sewing machine base and an antique marble table top.


This table top had a deep stain that we could not remove.


So (you do know what's coming next, right?), out came some Sakura® Pigma Microns. We're using black and brown to match this stain.


We coated it with Minwax® semi-gloss polyurethane.


Here's a detail shot. The old marble's porous surface gives the pen edges a nice velvety feel.


We'll show you how it looks when we do some more.

Magic, I love the way your zentangle seems to be growing out of the shell.

There are no accidents. Everything is working out perfectly as your Zentangle creates an even more beautiful marble table.
