Real marble or...?

The last 2 days I had some time to work on the resin fireplace that was laying around overhere since 2012! I finally had the nerve to start with the marbling of it.
This fireplace will be fitted in the parlour of my canal house. But where do you find marble in the colors that will fit this room? Indeed...you won't find them but you can find the right paint tubes to do the tric for you and ofcourse I had a good look at the reall marble in our hallway. After the first layers of paint I thought this will never start looking like real marble.
It didn't stop me...at this point it could only be improved was my opinion. So after a good nightrest I went on, drawing lots of tiny cracks and a few ocher spots for a warmer feeling. It's fun to do and in the end I was even pleased with the result. See for yourself and let me know what you think, okay?

Here's a close up of the first occupant of my canal house. So no one chases her of the sofa at this stage! And don't worry in the meantime I look after her.
