Raindrops front

My faux ivory was inspired by Victoria Hughes and Luann Udell. I started with thin layers of transparent and white polymer clay, passing them through the pasta machine multiple times. Then I sandwiched a layer of scrap clay with thin slices of the faux ivory. Next the fun began, cutting pleasing shapes, embedding beads and creating texture with clays patterns I had or tools. After baking, I sanded each piece smooth. Then I used a harsh sandpaper to give a scratched appearance and used black acrylic paint to bring out the patterns. On top of all this, I used a dark brown show polish to give an antiqued effect and finished it off with Renaissance wax.
