    Faux Painting Old World Parchment Faux Finish

    The Beautiful Art of Faux Painting. Old World Parchment. We begin this finish by loading our palette with golden brown and burnt umber.

    ZooMS is a non destructive scientific way to identify animal species from very small samples. It can be used on a variety of animal remains, even parchment. Sampling parchment is easy. All you need is your parchment, a piece of paper, plastic eraser and a small sample tube. You place the paper under your parchment, and gently wipe the parchment with the eraser. Parchment is made from animal skins, which are made of millions of strands of protein called collagen. Close up these proteins look similar to a mass of curly hair.
