Changed pictures, this one is so much better. A little more light today than yesterday.

There is that heart box again. Did I tell you I love those inexpensive mache boxes?
I am using a technique of layering colors together to make faux wood.
I also make bone and Ivory this way. More on that later.
I use 4 colors of Cernit to do this. Opaque white, White, Caramel, and Champagne.
All links will lead to my Hubby's on line store Clay Factory.
I endorse this blatant plug. ;-D
You will need:
2 blocks of Opaque White Cernit
1 block of White Porcelain Cernit
1 block of Caramel Cernit
1 block of Champagne Cernit
Clay Slicing Blade
1. Condition the Opaque White and then condition the Caramel.
2. Mix 4 parts of White with 1 part of Caramel until one color and roll out on the thickest setting in your Clay Machine. Or 1 block Opaque white mixed with 1/4 block Caramel.
The sheets that I made for this technique were about 4 1/2" by 3 1/8". You can make them smaller if you wish. A little over 1/2 a block will make a sheet this size.
3.Condition all of the other colors, including more Opaque White.
4. Start with a caramel sheet.
Cut it to fit the caramel sheet. You do not need everything to be perfect, in fact the more irregular everything is the better the wood looks so I do not trim away ragged edges, they are an asset.
Trim away excess.
But you, you must be perfect, hahahaha!!
Trim away the excess.
