Learn with 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. This lesson is broken down in 6 parts. Some very basic materials and tools are required.
Even though the detailed photographic instructions should make this even accessible to a beginning clayer, I do recommend some knowledge in how to condition clay. A link for my blog 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.
