I’ve had this sheet of 1/8″ thick 8″x8″ sheet of Faux Bone glaring at me for weeks now and I couldn’t take it any more.
Although this is my first time using a jeweler’s saw on my own, I don’t think I did too bad..are you supposed to use beeswax when cutting faux bone? I didn’t, but may try it next time just to see if it makes a difference.
Still deciding on designs and colors but it is exciting to have a blank canvas like this that is easy on the wallet.
There is still lots of finishing to be done, hope to get one piece completed by the weekend.
Ooooh – can't wait to see what you do with it. I had tried faux bone once. Cut out a piece, filed and sanded, put it down and was “going to finish it soon”. Well, it's been a couple years now and I can't locate those pieces or any of the faux bone for that matter! I hate when that happens! Those studio goblins can be so cruel!
Lol, I hate when that happens! I usually find that something or other when we move or I do a massive re-organization of my space. Thankfully, it's not too expensive and he recently started selling smaller pieces of faux bone- so less shaping, etc.
