- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Adam Crespi and welcome to Creating Textures: Drawing Granite and Terrazzo for Slabs, Medallions, and Mosaics. In this course, we'll look at constructing granite and terrazzo for countertops, floors and decorative applications. I'll start by showing you how to construct a large slab of granite including figuring, grain, and smaller stones and minerals embedded in the matrix. Then I'll show you how to draw a layout for a medallion in Adobe Illustrator, adding in the different pieces of stone and finally, the grout or the splines for terrazzo.
We'll be covering all these features plus plenty of other tools and techniques. Now let's get started with Creating Textures: Drawing Granite and Terrazzo for Slabs, Medallions, and Mosaics.
