albinism is a natural colour morph caused by a defect in the gene that is responsible for pigmentation.
it can not be made by man unless you are a genetics expert.
albinos can be bred by having one of the two parents that have the gene (IE male is normal, female is albino, or vice versa)

once you have viable offspring that have the gene then you breed only from those until you get a 100% albino trait in all offspring. then you have your albino version.

so your first task is to find a naturally occurring albino ray, which given its rarity will cost you a lot of cash and then you try to breed from it.
