I can't answer your question but maybe I can give you a helpful lead to the answer. I have seen this type of faux finish done on the TV show "Trading Spaces" by Hildy. I am also looking for the how-to on the tortoise shell finish. Good luck! Tortoise shell finishes are beautiful and affective. Go to Barnes and Noble. They have an abunance of books on faux finishing. It isn't the easiest task but if you're up for it you'll be so proud of yourself. Just remember patience is a big factor. There are drying times you have to abide by (otherwise your project could be ruined). As you're working on your project, if you feel like you're losing it, walk away for awhile...have a cup of joe. When you come back to it, you'll have, what we in the industry call, "new eyes". Good luck and have fun!

What are some of Aesop's fables' morals?

In Aesop's Fable, "The Tortoise and the Hare", the moral of the story is that a slow and steady pace wins the race instead of a fast, interrupted, and erratic method. It is taught in the story by the example of a fast hare and a slow tortoise agreeing to race to the finish line but the hare, believing there is no contest since he is so quick, is over confident and allows himself to be distracted and sidetracked by things like food and naps while the tortoise just keeps moving along focused in the direction of the finish line without interruption. In the end, the hare, full from snacking and tired from the antics along the way to the finish line, falls asleep and doesn't awake in time to race to the finish line before the tortoise on his straight and steady but slow pace gets there first and wins the race much to everyone's surprise and the hare's chagrin.For more examples, see the links section below.
