Default TLC803~Friend or Faux?~07/13/2020

Hello everyone! Today we're going to create using the Faux Fresco tutorial. I've never attempted this and when I looked at the gallery for the tutorial, it didn't look like many others had either. Most cards were dated in 2016 or earlier. Here is the tutorial:


The definition of 'fresco' is a painting done rapidly in watercolor on wet plaster on a wall or ceiling, so that the colors penetrate and become fixed as it dries. The Sistine Chapel ceiling is a fresco.

Some hints: be patient with this challenge; it was a challenge for me, although Anita and Sabrina had no problems with their samples. Use only white or buff acrylic paint; don't be tempted to try another. Whatever medium you use to color, make sure it's dry before applying the paint. Try to minimize the amount of paint on the colored parts; in other words, get most of the paint in the crevices, not on the colored parts if possible. I had the best luck if I didn't cover everything with a heavy coat.


Here's a link to our Gallery at Splitcoaststampersgallery


My cards will be in the first post.


Remember to use the keyword TLC803 when you are uploading. It's
helpful if you come back and leave a link on this thread, especially in
case you made a typo and people may not find your card.

If you're not sure how to link your card on the thread here, here's how:


1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says
www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Here are my two samples. First one was the most successful, second one is sort of an oops but I liked it well enough to use it.

Thank you Jean for this technique, I'd never tried this before, one more hint, don't sand too hard if not you could spoil your paper. I didn't have a sand block, so took sand paper from my DH and an acrylic block, that worked perfectly.

I think this is such a fun technique. I made at least 2 cards with this tech. I am going ot have to see if I loaded them to SCS and make sure to place them in the correct gallery. I would love to try it again!

Remember doing this technique for a St. Patricks card several years ago. This time did a Christmas card. Thanks for the repeat challenge.

Here's mine. Thanks for giving me cause to try this again, with more success than previously, though I still strugglefdwith the sanding. Not alone there, I gather.
