Rock On!

It’s Friday! Here is your weekend inspiration: faux stone techniques.

Just like the natural materials that they imitate, there are unending variations to these projects.  The photos are from Flickr, click on the image for more information or the links at the bottom of this post.

Want to dig in and make your own faux stones?  First check out the Glass Attic’s collection of information on faux recipes and techniques.

Want more?  Here are two great books on faux surfaces that are worth picking up.



I’d love to see your faux inspired projects or if you have a link to a faux tutorial, please feel free to share in the comments.

I’m also still accepting Halloween inspired creations to feature in an upcoming Reader’s Gallery.  Email your photos to mealong with your website or blog if you have one.
