Faux Bone is a new, user friendly, inexpensive and extremely versatile material. Faux Bone™ can be cut, and carved, sawn and sanded. It can be filed, hammered, polished, drilled, stamped, riveted, inlayed, dyed, and painted.
It can look like ivory, have the patina of aged ceramic, be polished to a pure white, or, of course, look like bone. You can heat and bend it with nothing more than a small heat-gun.
It is so strong you can rivet on it, die form right into it, or hammer metal around it. Faux Bone™ is perfect for artwork as varied as jewelry and book making, sculpture, or printmaking. It can be easily embossed to make texture plates for PMC or to simulate Scrimshaw. Rounds of Faux Bone™ can be heated and dapped (formed into a bowl shape) and filled with other materials or combined to make hollow beads. Its strength makes it ideal for use in tool making such as bone folders for bookmaking or as handles for files and stamps.
It can be carved and used for printmaking and then the Faux Bone™ "plate" can be patinated as a finished piece itself.
The versatility of this amazing product is extraordinary, being inert and non toxic, is an added bonus.
Tools such as checkering files, an electric engraver or quilling tools leave wonderful patterns on the Faux Bone™ which you can then infill with acrylic paint.
