    Action: Instant
    Catch: The artist in question is dead.
    Roll Results
    Dramatic Failure: The user of this clause receives incorrect information. He is convinced that he is correct.
    Failure: The art and its creator remain opaque to the caster.
    Success: Intuit basic information about a piece of art and his artist (one piece of information per success).  
    Exceptional Success: Nothing, bar the usual benefit for a larger number of successes.
  • Menu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu bulletMenu bulletMenu bullet  Finger-Painting:

    Dramatic Failure: The changes made by the clause are chaotic in nature, particularly in ways that seem unappealing to the caster.
    Failure: Nothing about the work is changed.
    Success: Change the facets of an already-completed piece of art (e.g. move the pigments on a given medium to create or change the appearance of paintings; rework clay or metal for ceramic or sculpture work). These changes only can stretch as far as one's supply of material.
    Exceptional Success: Changes can be made as though there were twice as much base material to work.

  • Menu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu hover bulletMenu hover bullet  The Painted World:
    When hiding from enemies, the Hedge might prove too dangerous to use. This clause permits a changeling to become part of a piece of art he has created, hiding in plain sight (e.g. become part of a statue, enter the painting, become decoration along a jar, etc.).
    Cost: 5 Glamour + 3 Willpower
    Dice Pool: Wyrd + Occult + Crafts
    Action: Extended (target 10, roll interval one day; each additional 5 successes increase the Structure of the painting by 2).
    Catch: Leave a Wyrd-mark clearly indicating the piece of art as a point of interest to fae creatures.
    Roll Results
    Dramatic Failure: The caster is unaware of the failure of the clause. The moment someone enters the sanctuary, it immediately collapses, causing levels of aggravated damage equal to their Wyrd or equivalent stat; mortals take one damage. 
    Failure: The artwork is simply a normal piece of art.
    Success: Turn a piece of artwork into a sanctuary. This sanctuary acts as a Hollow of size 1 and amenities 1; this Hollow can be entered by spending a point of Glamour and walking into the art. This sanctuary lasts for Wyrd days before becoming an ordinary piece of art. If any individuals are within the artwork as it is destroyed or becomes ordinary, they are forced out, taking levels of aggravated damage equal to their Wyrd or equivalent stat; mortals take one damage. 
    Exceptional Success: The sanctuary lasts for Wyrd weeks, rather than days.
