This lesson is broken down in 6 parts. Learn by detailed step by step to make molds from objects and then create cabochons or pendants simulating antique ivory/bone carvings with realistic cracks and a worn appearance.
Some very basic materials and tools are required.
Even though the detailed photographic instructions should make this even accessable to a beginning clayer, I do recommend some knowledge on how to work with polymer clay. A link for my blog, if needed, on how to condition clay is also included with the instructions.
Steps are broken down into these parts:
~Choosing an object and making a mold
~Creating a mold
~Mixing the ivory or bone clay color
~Making a copy from your mold
~Antiquing and cracks
~Worn and aged look
Tutorial is very detailed with 48 photos, 42 steps and 16 pages.
