Faux Fun

When I started claying doing faux stone techniques was one of my favorite thing to do. I used translucent clay and added inclusions like embossing powders and dried flowers. Later I tried adding alcohol inks to tint the clay and it worked very nicely. A combination of the 3 would be a great experiment. I’ll have to add that to the list. 🙂

One of my favorite pieces was this inro wearable vessel I made many years ago.

Faux Stone Dragonfly Inro

The body looks sort of like rough moonstone. The leaves faux green jade, the dragonfly purple jade.

    Hey I was going to comment on the faux retro fabric! You beat me to it! It’s very cool. I’ve made every one of the other faux’s before, even faux fabric, but the texture on top really takes it to the next level!
