    Shane, That is a wonderful table that you made out of "found" objects. I, too like to re-use things I find...Bruce that painting is very good. You have real talent, and I hope that you continue to paint! This is a FUN thread! Betty :-)

    Well, rather leary about adding this poor contribution after seeing the much finer works others have displayed, but it's the best I can offer at this time. This is a stepping stone I made for my parents a number of years ago. Actual plant material was used to make the impressions.

    I think that it's very nice! I would be happy to receive such a gift. Looks like a phalaenopsis orchid, with fern leaves underneath....I'm sure that your parents were pleased! Betty :-)

    It is very appealing Pavel, I like the natural finish that looks like 'cocuchas'; what material is it made of actually, and how did you create that effect?

    That is indeed what I used.

    I had to look 'cocuchas' up but that's okay as I learned something new today. Some nice pics on the Net.

    The stepping stone is made out of light blue cement. I had it left over from another project and figured I'd just paint over it so no big deal. As I was painting it, I decided to leave some of the light blue visible -- I was aiming for creating a bit of a verdigris effect around the areas painted copper. The cocuchas-effect was the result of painting the rest of the stone rust-brown and then, after that coat dried, over laying that with a thin coat of black paint most of which I then wiped off before it could dry.
