    Imperial rhodonite chain

    Thank you for showing the completed piece. I do admire your patience with attending to the complexities of carving and polishing chain links. The color and luminosity is marvelous against the green jade background. Are you going to launch into a more simple piece next? Janel

    Hello DarrenK, Thank you for posting the images of what you are doing. What materials are you using, and what is that bright green eye inlay? It is quite a lively material. Janel

    Mammoth tusk weight - 5.55 kg.

    Hello, I do not have current knowledge of the price of mammoth tusk. I hope that you will find the information you need. A gentle reminder, this forum is not the place to make sales, so if someone does want to purchase anything please keep the discussion and activity private and not on the forum pages. Best wishes, Janel

    how do you de-grease bone?

    What is sugar soap? I think that acetone is the basic ingredient in finger-nail polish remover.

    how do you de-grease bone?

    There are methods for preparing bone in the archives. Using the search function is unwieldy, but with enough patience the best suggestions will form a pattern with the shared information from over the years. You might also try using a Search Engine like google, etc., mentioning The Carving Path, which would target the information in the forum as well. In the archives there are many topics regarding the preparation of bone, and many other informational topics and posts about the selection and use of bones. I found this one that might be helpful: https://www.thecarvingpath.net/topic/3123-bones-that-had-been-cleaned-all-cracked/?tab=comments#comment-25210 One takeaway from it is to not cook the bone, and read about the various degreasing agents. Cooking might tend to force the fats into the bone, in my opinion. Good luck to your investigation, preparation and carving of the bone! Janel

    Hello!

    Hello Tim, Your first attempt is a very elegant one. Your choice to create an inset for the engraved copper works visually as well as functionally, making a sleek profile that lays flat. Welcome! Janel

    Help a member find images please?

    Thank you for reminding me about this. I did locate the person and eventually received the images for what I believe had been requested. "Here are two images of the pump set up that we've cobbled together. The covington unit above the pump has a drip feed and the water drains out from the side through the large tube & depends on gravity to settle the sludge."

    Sealing Bone (Finish)

    Hi Paul, Thank you! I have a selection of old dental tools, actually acquired the first ones at the St. Paul, MN Science Museum that had been roughly ground into very interesting, useful tools. They were then called amateur archeology tools, as I recall. I gave them attention on my whet and diamond stones, and used them a lot before making other sorts of tools. Never thought of river stones, good idea. Janel

    Imperial rhodonite chain

    I can understand the time that it takes for sanding and polishing. One must especially draw upon patience during this stage to achieve the final, flawless gleam.
