Faux Gemstones

You never know where you'll find a useful technique.  Bruno at "Acetone and Old Lacquer" brings us some impressive faux gemstones created using nail polish and glass cabochons.  These would be perfect as mounted stones in an idol or artifact.  The cabochons are available in extremely precise sizes, so it's easy to incorporate a depression for mounting one into a sculpt.  The finishes available are just amazing.
