Faux Bois Swap :: Sign Up!

Faux Bois (from the French for "false wood") refers to the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various media.

In this swap you will create and craft an object that highlights faux bois elements.

Try to create something that your partner would like or use - but in the end the most important thing is for you to enjoy crafting with faux bois.


* Photo frames
* Place mats
* Nesting boxes

Here are the details to join:

* Spend $10 or less on new materials
* To join you must have a rating of 4 or higher, and zero no-sends (if you feel you have been rating unfairly and would like to be considered please send me a message)
* This IS an international swap
* Your object must be handmade (of course, you may use store-bought materials)

For some inspiration take a look at this blog.

Faux bois can be created using contact paper, sculpture, carving, paint, stamps.... use your imagination!
