In this very hands-on and extensive workshop, we will explore Faux Bone™, a new, friendly, and extremely versatile material. Faux Bone™ can be cut, and carved, sawn, and sanded. It can be filed, hammered, polished, drilled, stamped, inlayed (with resins ad putties), dyed, and painted. It can look like ivory, have the patina of aged ceramic, or be polished to a pure white. A full range of color can also be applied to your Faux Bone work using a variety of materials and techniques. You can heat and bend it with nothing more than a small embossing heat-gun. It is so strong you can rivet on it, die form right into it, or hammer metal around it. Being nearly unbreakable, it’s also perfect for forming tools, tool/knife handles and jigs. It can be easily embossed to make texture plates for metal clay, concrete, and polymer clay.
Employing a very wide range of cold and mechanical connections including riveting, micro-fasteners, tabs, prongs, folds and pierced we will explore the many and varied ways that Faux Bone can be combined with virtually any other material including (but not limited to) found objects, concrete, metals, polymer clay, stone, gems, wood, and fibers.
Faux Bone™ is perfect for artwork as varied as jewelry and book making, sculpture, printmaking, mixed media or fiber arts and you will be able to explore any of these during the workshop.

PREREQUISITE: all levels welcome
