    Can I use the actual tusks from a warthog for mounting purposes,or do I need to use the artificial ones.

    Ask the customer what he wants. I always used the real tusks. They are made of ivory.

    I concur. Ask the customer. To answer your question if you CAN use the real ones... yes. Dont boil them though. They can crack. And fill the hollow with Apoxi if they are hallow.
