You take a swimming pool an into it you seep a dozen bales of pampus grass for
a week. Add some yellow dust, just a few hundred pounds or so, and a gallon of
peanut oil.
Let set for a few days till the dirt settles to the bottom.  Dip out a couple
bucks full and start walking up and down the streets. When you see an elaphent
you start putting drops of the water on the pavement and lure it back to your
pool. After the Elephant enters the pool add a couple hundred pound of peanuts.
When after the elephant gets sleepy you can convince it to donate to you it's
ivory.

Here's a simple recipe (which eventually I'll get around to taking pictures
of and putting up on my website):

1. Condition a quantity of translucent clay and press it into a flat sheet.
You can do this with the pasta machine, but using your hands will make the
thickness a little irregular, which is desirable.

Use the same amount of ivory-colored clay,to make a second sheet the same
size. Sculpey makes an ivory, or you can use a mix of half white and half
champagne Fimo, or whatever mix you like for an ivory color.

Lay one sheet on top of the other and cut in fourths. Stack the
fourth-sheets. You now have a block with alternating layers of ivory and
translucent, a total of eight layers. Press and flatten the block with your
hands, then cut it in fourths again and stack again; you now have 32
layers. Repeat this twice more.

You end up with a block of finely layered clay. You probably won't be able
to see the layers very well - the translucent will change color during
firing and they'll become more obvious. These layers form the grain of the
ivory. Slice pieces off each of the four sides (not the top and bottom) to
use. You can draw designs in the ivory with a needle, make light scratches
for an antique "damaged" look, etc.

Fire the pieces as usual. If you want, after firing, rub a patina of dark
brown paint into the crevices, then wipe most of it off with a paper towel.
After the paint dries, rub with fine steel wool (#000) and buff slightly
for a light sheen.

Dear Newsgroup Members:

What we have here is a jerk who thinks he can spook me. Here's proof
that "his" email address is fake:

The original message was received at Fri, 30 Oct 1998 10:48:58 -0500
(EST)
from swan.prod.itd.earthlink.net [207.217.120.123]

*** ATTENTION ***

Your e-mail is being returned to you because there was a problem with
its
delivery.  The AOL address which was undeliverable is listed in the
section
labeled: "----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors
-----".

The reason your mail is being returned to you is listed in the section
labeled: "----- Transcript of Session Follows -----".

The line beginning with "<<<" describes the specific reason your e-mail
could
not be delivered.  The next line contains a second error message which
is a
general translation for other e-mail servers.

Please direct further questions regarding this message to your e-mail
administrator.

--AOL Postmaster

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----

I suggest we all just set our filters to this guy so that his messages
are all either marked as "read" or deleted.

Thanks,
cheryl

I don't suppose it would hurt to touch base with his ISP:

I don't know what's going on here.  I posted a simple message asking for help.  I got one long message which was not helpful and another message which was very helpful and for which I am thankful.  However, I've noted that there is some guy posting ugly messages.  I am in no way connected with this person and I don't know who he is.  

I'm beginning to wonder if I violated some protocol by posting my original question.  If it's against the rules to ask for help, let me know and I will go back to lurking.  I don't like people being rude to me and I would never be rude to anyone.

Thank you.

Beverly, you did nothing wrong. Lisle replied with a cute anecdote, and
I responded to her. Then along comes a jerk trying to harass ME! I'm
truly sorry if any of this ***has disturbed you. This Bill person is
using a fake name and address. I'll be forwarding copies of his notes to
the Administrator of Earthlink requesting disciplinary action.

Actually, it would do a lot GOOD, especially if everyone who saw his
original two messages forwarded them to the Earthlink Administrator!

Your right Bill, I am' one Ugly woman'.
Maybe it is because I am a 200+pound  6 foot tall man who presses over 100
pounds and a trained military combatent  and can get meaner than you want to
know about.

Go play in someone elses sand box. You don't belong even in this neigborhood.

Unfortunately, if that person is who I think he is, he is a very
irresponsible and immature person who will not just go away. He has to


will investigate. I sent them email including all of the headers. "Cage"
and "Bill" are indeed the same person. They have the same "ping" [IP]
address.

I have received confirmation that the person is a slip.net customer.
Both Earthlink and Slip Net are in the process of actively investigating
this person with "severe action" to be taken. I think "he" is about to
find out that "he" tangled with the WRONG person.
