Cthulhu Fhtagn! Deirdre Edition

Artist "Deirdre" brings us this nicely done Cthulhu idol with a very convincing finish reproducing the look of old limestone. Click through to the large version and you'll see the mossy spots aren't a monochromatic "green", but a subtle blend of multiple shades ranging from earth to an almost yellow green. That's one of the secrets of a believable faux finish. By bracketing the base color with at least one brighter and one darker shade you start to capture the random variations in color found in nature.
