Carved in Stone or Stencil?

OOOPs! Well I thought I had posts all set to appear while I was on my Spain/Morocco trip, but in my haste to get everything done the night before I neglected to select “publish” and produced a lot of dead air time. SO-while I recover from jet lag, do laundry, catch up on bills, edit my photos for Flickr and try to ease back into my “real” world, I’ll let a couple of these fly……

I love the look of the carved Jali sandstone in these pages fromAlberto Pinto Orientalism (fab book BTW!).

I can’t tell if they are real carved stone or painted carvings….

but this look of carved stone is easily achieved with a single-overlay stenciling and some careful attention to shading with a stencil brush.

I featured in my book, Painted Illusions, and it’s also detailed out in this DVD on Advanced Shading and Shadowing and this one on Furniture and Floor techniques. If you do it on a textured sureface or apply decorative finishing techniques to create the look of stone before adding the stenciling it makes the illusion of carved stone seem even more real. It works great on wood too! The designs shown above are the Italianate Border, Italian Medallion and Reverse Scroll and can be found here!

This is soo sexy and hot, the other night TMZ got a report that Rihanna was on her last girl on earth tour and she had a surprise visit from Eminem who performed their latest celebrity gossip hit together called, Love The Way You Lie. Rihanna is the prettiest female celebrities out in the music industry, she has had a large amount of celebrity sex tape scandals in her years as a singer song writer

    He asked Rihanna to perform whatever song that came to mind for her. Rogers was obviously suprised on what great talent Rihanna had. Immediately, both Rogers and Rihanna made demos containing close to twelve tracks including the 2005 smash hit Pon De Replay and mailed the demos out to various recording comanies including Def Jam Recordings where Rihanna would eventually be signed onto.

  3. Rihanna established her dance-pop credentials in summer 2005 with her debut smash hit, “Pon de Replay,” and continued to demonstrate such hit potential in subsequent years (e.g., “S.O.S.” in 2006; “Umbrella” in 2007; “Disturbia” in 2008). However, it was the singer’s third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, that made her a full-fledged international pop star with a regular presence atop the charts. Born Robyn Rihanna Fenty on February 20, 1988, in Saint Michael, Barbados, she exhibited a certain star quality as a young child, often winning beauty and talent contests.

    Rihanna is a singer, song writer, music producer, model, executive producer, author and much much more. Rihanna has gotten herself 6 number one aria awards, 11 number one singles on the hot 100 chart and she is the world’s best selling pop female artist. You never know what Rihanna will get up to next, part of her singing career she posed naked on stage which should have has potential damaging results but it turned out, as always, it propelled her music career to and extremely high level. Rihanna has made millions with her albums, umbrella, love is all around, disturbia. She has the best R&B song of all time and will never go down.
