Faux Cloisonne

Hello Again everyone

I was having a browse on friends blogs and came across Technique Time Tuesday where I found something I had never heard of before so I followed the tutorial for the challenge and I am just in time to enter .

The technique is called Faux Cloisonne so I had to look up what Cloisonne means

cloi·son·né  (kloiz-n, kl-wäz-)
1. Decorative enamelwork in which metal filaments are fused to the surface of an object to outline a design that is filled in with enamel paste.
2. The art or process of producing such enamelwork.
[French, past participle of cloisonner, to partition, from Old French cloison, partition, from Vulgar Latin *clausi, clausin-, from Latin clausus, past participle of claudere, to close, lock.]

There are lots of wonderful entries for the challenge and the DT samples are amazing.

I found a glossy picture of a turkey and used some of that for my background for the Chocolate Baroque clock stamp

Hope your day is going well

Love Chrissie x

This is just the turkey magazine page you found to use for the Faux Cloisonné technique, makes a perfect color for the sundial image. I really like that you included a definition of the technique and the magazine page in your post. Thanks for joining us at TTT - Karen, DT

Wow, Chrissie - this is thinking outside the box and then some! The gilding looks just fabulous against the glowing golden colours of the - how creative is this?! - TURKEY picture!! Though it does make the little white bird look somewhat cannibalistic when you know what those vivid colours really are!

Fantastic leafy surroundings too - this is such a great make.
