It’s Friday! Here is your weekend inspiration: faux stone techniques.
Just like the natural materials that they imitate, thereÂ are unending variations to these projects.Â 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?Â First check out the Glass Attic’s collectionÂ of information on faux recipes and techniques.
I love this project for a fossilized coral cane.Â It’s hard to tell the faux from the real deal!
Want more?Â 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 toÂ a fauxÂ 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.Â Email your photos to mealong with your website or blog if you have one.
