ASL: "fault"


FAULT: As in "responsible for something bad":

Here's a view of the sign "FAULT" from an angle:

Animated gif: "FAULT"



The sign "BLAME" or "to charge with wrongdoing" can be aimed toward oneself to mean:
They said it was my fault!
I was blamed.
Accused me.
I was charged with wrongdoing.
It was my responsibility for the bad thing that happened.



If you mean "fault" as in "a geological fault" such as a crack in the strata (layers) of the earth then see the page: CRACK but do the sign horizontally (not vertically -- unless you are talking about a fault in the side of a mountain).
