I think most of us have a repertoire of faux techniques we use regularly but how often do you push that technique, changing up the colors used, the finished texture or even going from solid clay colors to translucents?
Christine Michel created these gorgeous river rocks using what looks like a standard approach to emulating the water smoothed stones and their variation in color and inclusions. It’s a great, realistic looking choice of colors and the use of translucent clay gives the color in the ‘rocks’ additional variation.
If you haven’t tried your hand at faux river rocks, here is a great tutorial by Maria Jam Brown that shows how to create a few different types of rocks (scroll down and click on the red link.) Go have fun with it!
