Tagua nuts

Recommended Posts

I have never used it.

I think synthetic ivory is a better color, equally as cheap, and far easier to work.

Tagua nut will only give you a small size to work with. It's used primarily to simulate ivory, which can be done in a number of ways. I don't use real ivory.

There are a number of artists that do. I do use fossil ivory on occaision, but I am finding less and less of a need for it.

It's supposed to work like ivory. I have seen a lot of carvings done with it. I do have raw tagua nut in the shop, but withthe prep needed to make blanks it's not worth it to me.
