    Working with Antler

    Sorry but this is a question! I live in queensland,australia,and the deer species here are red deer. I have worked with this on knife handles and scrimshaw on the crowns but find crving it to be rather disappointing because of the porous nature of the antler. So to the question, what species of deer is the best for carving netsuki? re this link to netsuki carving in japan :- http://ameblo.jp/rokusho-dou/entry-11909065222.html It seems to me that this is solid all the way through! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ron https://www.facebook.com/scuppostuff

    Tools For Carving Ivory

    Hi Brad Check out this site, it has some tutorials on making netsuki carving tools for Ivory. I dont see why they cant be used for other mediums as well. http://followingtheironbrush.org/viewforum.php?f=57&sid=f8b1ab214896da00d5e616dd841d0016

    This was a challenge

    Thanks! Hey I agree! Didn't have anything appropriate at the time eg: amber etc.. I still can change the eyes by inlaying some Mother of Pearl for the pupil but it seems that it might be arse about if I did this. Cheers Ron

    Hi Christophe It seems that you have mistaken the image, as it isn't an OCTOPUS but a SQUID. Cheers Ron

    This was a challenge

    This was a challenge! This was an attempt to carve very intricate detail into this piece by bringing out the tentacles from the material and also getting the ebony eyes to bulge a bit. The toggle for this is a carved bone in the shape of a shell. The greatest challenge were getting the suckers small enough without losing the detail. I would like everybody's "constructive comments" on this piece. Cheers Ron

    Staining Bone

    I agree with Boneart about copying others work, sure get inspiration from it but don't copy. Me! I love Kerry's work but it is a style that I personally isn't mine! Sure we can practice some of his techniques but that is all it is, practice! Not copying his designs! http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/ron.scupham http://www.etsy.com/shop/dragonrising
