How to create an Ivory tusk
By: Desiree McCrorey
She was introduced to a faux ivory technique in a Tory Hughes workshop a long time ago.
She modified the technique somewhat. This technique takes advantage of the properties of translucent polymer clay, mimicking the striations seen in bone or ivory. If you do this right, people will have an extremely hard time telling this from the real thing.
