DIY // Marble Backdrop

marble backdrop

If you are in the blogging world, I am sure you have seen that the marble backdrop is all the rage in product pictures especially flat lays. I really loved how this backdrop looked and I knew I wanted to make one fore myself. I’m sure you guys agree that it bring a certain ‘clean’ feel to product pictures. So one weekend I set out to make one for myself. It wasn’t hard at all to make, the hardest part was finding the supplies in Durban. Once you have those, everything is a breeze.

So I will write down the supplies on this blog post, I shot a video of the process because it’s hard to explain and it’s much better to watch.

DIY Marble Backdrop


 Just a note, the contact paper can be found in the bathroom accessories aisle at Makro. I walked around the whole shop and had a few sales assistants trying to help me find it when I went to buy it 🙂

    Really helpful video, thank you Lungi!
    A marble backdrop is on my to-do list, and I’d been thinking I could cover wood with it, but foam board is obviously a lighter, and cheaper alternative.
    Thank you!
