If you want to do it by the book, you have to sand it even if you do it just a quick sand - a sanding machine comes in handy for this job.
I thought is going to be very difficult at first, but after, I feel like I want to paint all walls and all furniture in marble effect :-) It is time consuming, but I think is fascinating and if you make mistakes, you can always paint over and make it look like is part of it.
My advise is to try first on a small bit of furniture that you don't really care too much if you ruin it.
This is where I got the instructions:

Best of luck.

Default marble effect paint on small table and chair

I cant get over the work you have done. I have spent the last few days trying to find out about what paint I need as I want to try it myself on a worktop I have at home. Could you please tell me what kind of paint I need exactly.

Many thanks Mary Ryan

I have used normal white gloss paint for timber - and you only need one tube of coloured acrilic paint to create your different shades (any colour that you want your marble effect to be black, green, orange, blue etc.). I have done 3 shades of grey (so I needed 1 tube of black acrilic paint, mixed in the white paint). When you are finished with your marble effect, put 2 or 3 coats of clear gloss varnish to protect it and to give it the marble shine. I was affraid the paint will peal off on my fire surround because of the heat, but it seams to be ok. hope this helps.

Best of luck! I am sure you won't be sorry. It's time consuming but ... I think is fascinating.
