Hei Matau (2X) - Beginner...

Recommended Posts

Hello all...


I wanted to try something more "traditional"... and I just LOVE the fish-hook shape. Got the blanks from eBay... seller declared them to be CAMEL bone... may this be possible?

Too bad they were too thin (around 5mm) to have a really three-dimensional finished piece... well, for a pendant they may be fine.. next time I'll try to get a more "shapely" result

Made some mistakes here and there, but I was able to correct most of them. Surface decoration is still underdeveloped... hope to improve in the future. Leashing is a pain...

comments are welcome...

Nice lines on your first one bro. I like it. I've carved camel myself and love the texture in the finish. Good stuff, Billy.
