  1. So I have been making some bone pendants, as my start into carving. And looking at all the images around there are quite a few where patterns have been carved into bone. These patterns are mainly just straight lines and curved lines to add decoration to the piece. Now I started carving as I had a dremel for DIY around the house and wanted to use it more. So it might not be the right tool, or I simple might not have the right bits or that I am simply not good enough. I have practiced on bone with no results or technique that I would use on an actual piece. I have also found a guy in NZ who makes gravers for bone carving ($100) but I am not sure if they are the right tool for what I want. Although I think if I did get them I would use them so they wouldn`t be wasted. So If anyone can give me any hints on what bits to use, or the how or if gravers would do it I would be grateful. cheers, Marcus.
  2. Hi all. My brother saw the pendants I made for my mum and sister and he asked me for a dragon. They are not my designs, but just part of my trail and error to learn. My brother is quite good with a pencil and is drawing up some things for me to try. That why I don't need to copy images from the net. Anyway massive novice error. The dragon with the wings, I was happy with where I`d gotten and was sanding `n` singing `n` sanding very happily. It still has a bit of a curve in the bone and moving it around in my vice to get at different angles. Slightly over tightened and crack, crack. I`d put the whole piece in the vice instead of just the edge and with the curve in the bone, something had to give. All the time that went into it I didn`t fell like remaking it, I made something a little simpler. Now grey grit from the sand paper is in the crack on the front of the piece, Anything I can do? I guess everyone has had their novice error, or brain fade. If anyone has any mistakes or simple errors that could be avoided I`d like to hear them.
