Faux Bone Leaves
Pictured, leaf forms made from 1/16" Faux Bone with half-drilled Swarovski crystal pearls. Colored with Ranger Adirondack alcohol inks. I used five different ink colors, plus tiny, random dabs of gold mixative. Applied with the generally used standard dauber for this brand of ink. According to conventional wisdom, one should not reuse the dauber. I found this to not be true, at least in applying
ink on these and several leaves which are in the process of completion. The same application of ink is used on the reverse side. One leaf is made as a pendant, the other as a brooch.
Next post, more Faux Bone, new project.
