marble is heavy and hard to cut..

therefore intricate accents of mable would be hard to do..
simple squares are easy..

You can buy marblizer paint from house of colors paint and use that on your hard plastic peaces, I know house of colors is a automotive paint but it works good on plastic if you prep it right and use adhesive promotor it will look tight my favorite is the sivler white marblizer over black. :0 There is a car in our club that has the silver white over purle in his hard plastic interior parts but i cant help u with pics sorry.

House of Kolor..

I've marbled a few things with their paint..

lay down your base color, let cure, then throw down the marbelizer..
use saran wrap or whatever you want to get your marble effect.. bubblewrap, tin foil, whatever... each will give a different look...
then after like 5 deconds, pull or peel the wrap off...

clear coat, and youre done..

depending on your clear, you may have to use an intercoat clear first
