Faux stacked stones
 
Hi, here's a kitchen that I did the faux stacked stones in between the cabinets. The keystone above the window has a "J" shaded in the center for the homeowners last name, I always like to do that just to personalize it alittle. They like it because they know it's there but not everyone else who looks at it does!!! Thanks again, Carol:wave:

Thanks for showing this to us. Looks good! It's interesting to see how different people do stone.

What a great idea! I've never known what to suggest for those areas besides tile. This looks wonderful and works with the colors of the walls and cabinets. Wow.

Thanks everyone, I am still working on this design what I'd like to see is more of the stones kind of sticking out. Like the stone fireplaces? I am thinking if I just put a wider and deeper color shadow under some then I will get that look- what do you all think ? all input appreciated. The homeowner really liked this effect so that's the main thing. I am always striving for more thought!!!!
thanksfor looking, Carol

Becky you are so right we do paint alot alike and I do believe it comes from the both of us first doing the tole painting. I started tole painting back in 1982, and went from there, as I'm sure you did the same thing. I look at your work and see my own paintings alot of the times. Y ou are so talented and I would be proud to be a partner!!!!!! I do believe that too is why I love to do all the details, sometimes I just have to tell myself to quit or I could go on and on with the details!!!! Thanks so much, Carol

I love the chickens on the top of the shelves. If you hadn't of shown the close up photos of the stones I would have no idea what you were talking about. In the full view picture I couldn't tell, it looks so real.

That looks great, Carol! Time consuming I'm sure, but well worth the effort for such a great, warm look :thumbsup:

I think you are right and you could probably jag the mortar a little more unevenly if you are wanting the stones to stick out a little. But they are very beautiful as is. Your detail work definitely enhances the whole kitchen.

Re: Faux stacked stones
 
I'm not sure if this is what you mean... I took a little piece of yours and played with it a little bit.



Here's how to think of it. Imagine stacked stones with light coming from upper left. Tops and visible left sides are lightest. Right sides are darker (away from light source), cracks and bottoms turning away from light will be darkest.



Hope this helps!
Ruth
