Nice faux turquoise!  

Which method and materials did you use?

(For anyone interested in various ways of making faux turquoise, there are lessons on this page at my site using different materials/techniques/etc:

I chopped it up in a food processor, covered it in black paint and formed it into the shapes.  I baked it, then sanded the paint off.  I then buffed it.

Cool and good results.  Did you use an translucent clay or any color mixes for the chopped clay? (photo isn't quite close-up enough to tell for sure --looks like you didn't?)

No, I didn't.  I have seen orange or gold mixed in, but I like this.

Yours is definitely cool.  I was actually thinking of various shades of blue/green as the color "mixes."
