James has painted walls, chair rails, light fixtures and furniture to look like marble. To get a depth and smoothness that fools people into thinking it truly is marble, takes a lot of layers and effort. Each marble look is custom created to suit the desires of the client -- whether to match carpeting or colors in a room, or to match real marble.
