  1. Morning on a flower

    this year, some problems get me out of the forum...I am back and I discover this piece ... wow! thank you!!! I just discover carving ivory and I tell myself there are so many things to do ...and you prove it! I particularly like the association with gold ... really really fantastic ! this should be a large block of ivory ...if some one know where I can find this...
  2. not just for fun...

    I had some little pieces of damascus and ironwood, then I decided to make me a little knife for carving ivory. I tried it yesterday...and it works ! and it's a pleasure to work with...

    Thank you. To get inside, I used dental drill tools, and for polish...I don't find the good words: a micromotor tool with silicone which contains an abrasive... ok, I found a picture of it!

  12. "Elf"

    I completely forget to tell you that a friend of mine made a video of the making of this sword with all the step by step. There is a little translation (sorry, not complete). You can download the movies here: http://www.elfic.fr/anglais/pages/sword.htm the first part is for the blade, and the second is for the carving work. You will see how I'm working and then, can tell me some advises to do it better next time!

  14. Whale Teeth & Elephant Ivory

    Hello! (sorry for my english, I hope you will understand...) Working on ivory begins to be difficult today... I have a big old elephant tusk with cites, which I could use for a lot of years, but it's really difficult for business: CITES is ok for the one country, if I want to sale the piece at foreign, I must ask a new citec for each piece... I think mammoth ivory is the best solution, it's a good ivory for carving, and there is no problem for customs (when they know mammoth... ). The problem in this moment is to find good quality of mammoth, particularly with big white piece for carving...
  15. It is Summer! (in the northern hemisphere)
