Polymer Clay Tutorial - How to create realistic faux bone and faux ivory.

In this tutorial, I will instruct you how to create beautiful, realistic faux bone and faux ivory using two different methods. This comprehensive tutorial contains 10 recipes, 8 for faux bone and 2 for faux ivory; plus 6 special projects to create using the instructions in the tutorial.

The special projects range from super easy to intermediate, with lots of color photos. The tutorial contains a detailed tools and materials list, a source guide for all the items used, as well as two finishing lessons, one on sanding and buffing using a modified Dremel Rotary Hand Tool and one on using a plexiglas/lucite sheet to shape and refine edges and curves for a smoother, more polished and professional look to your jewelry.

The tutorial also contains numerous tips from me which I have learned from my years of experimenting with polymer clay, which I hope will help make the creative process easier, more fun, and more successful for you. My goal in writing the tutorials is to make you feel as if I am sitting right beside you as you create.

Please note this tutorial contains my tried and true method of creating faux bone and faux ivory. Faux bone is a popular subject for tutorials, and many people have published books and lessons on creating their versions of it. It is one of the most commonly used faux techniques for polymer clay. I do not claim to have invented the "faux bone or faux ivory for clay" process. The recipes included are from my own experimentation. They are not taken from anyone else's formulas. There are bound to be similarities between my method and other people's, but this process is entirely mine in creation.

Some basic knowledge and experience with polymer clay is helpful, but not absolutely necessary. The instructions are aimed at the novice and the experienced clayer. It does not contain a skill level. There are a few basic tools and supplies you will need to purchase if you have not previously worked with polymer clay, none of which are very expensive or hard to find; as well as other tools and supplies specifically needed for the special projects. If you have never worked with polymer before, please email me here at the shop. I would be happy to answer questions and help find sources of materials for you.

A special note: One of the recipes contained in the tutorial does use alcohol ink, specifically Ranger Adirondack ink. You should know currently, alcohol ink cannot be shipped outside the U.S. If you live outside the United States, you may find a listing of international sources for Ranger Inks at http://www.rangerink.com/store_locator_intl.htm. If you are not able to find a source inside your country, email me. I have many international customers and contacts worldwide who would be happy to help you find a source for them.

This tutorial was road tested prior to publication and given the seal of approval for ease of use by a few of my friends and colleagues, some of whom have no experience with polymer clay and some of whom are renowned polymer clay artists. If you have any questions after purchasing it, or need clarification about any step or instruction, I am just an email away and will gladly answer any questions or clarify any step you do not understand. While learning with this tutorial, it is my intent to give you as much information as possible without actually being there beside you as you work.

You will need Adobe Reader to access the tutorial. If you do not have the Adobe Reader program, you may download the latest version at no cost at www.adobe.com.

My finishing tutorials on sanding and buffing and using a plexiglas/lucite sheet to shape and refine are also included. If you have previously purchased of mine which also includes these mini lessons, please let me know before you check out and I will reserve a copy at a discounted price which does not include the mini lessons; or, in the alternative, you may choose to receive either a store credit or an additional faux bone and ivory special project.

If you are new to polymer clay, welcome! Polymer clay is one of the most versatile artistic mediums you will find. If you can imagine it, you can pretty much achieve it with polymer. I am honored, and thrilled to be able to help you learn more about it to create your own beautiful, one-of-a-kind works of art.

Trish Hodgens at www.polyclayplay.com has generously agreed to offer my customers a discount off the supplies in my tutorials that she carries. Trish will carry as many of the supplies and materials as possible used in my tutorials. Each tutorial has its own discount code, and I will email it to you upon purchase. If you don't hear from me within 24 hours, please contact me here through Etsy.

Thank you,

Lynda Moseley

Feedback for my tutorials:

"Lynda continues to amaze me with the amount of information she is willing to share with others. I think she is particularly happy to help people who are new to working with polymer clay. It gives her great joy to bring them into the world of polymer. I am one of those people, and we have become great friends as a result. I can call on her (and often do!) any time I have a question about polymer."

"Lynda is generous and kind and really wants her customers to succeed. Her encouragement and support don't end with the sale, either. I have asked her many questions about polymer, and if she doesn't know the answer, she will find someone who does. How rare is that, and especially in someone you've never even met in person! I'm a fan for life, and eagerly await the next tutorial from this mega-talented lady."

"Thank you Lynda- fantastic tutorial- just what I was looking for. If I could get my creations looking half as good as yours do -I would be thrilled. Your techniques are terrific and easy to follow."

"I can't believe I found a tutorial that is easy to follow and packed with information I had no idea existed. Awesome!"
