Greetings to all forum members from Riga (Latvia). My name is Dmitry Martinov, I am a gold/silversmith working as a jeweller for 6 years already. Right now I have a lot of interests about carving, because it will be interesting to combine this arts together. I made only one piece where I used the deer horn. It was Lilly-of-the-valley made of Sterling silver and the flowers are made of horn, the same material used for stand. I didn´t used any power tools to get the flowers, only 2 files and sandpaper. By following this link you can see some of my works http://foto.inbox.lv/workshop .I believe that I will find here a lot of good people wich making beautifull pieces, and show the way how to start carvings. I thing that is all for now, if you have any questions, I´ll try to answer on them as soon as it possible.

To Janel: Thx for welcome, the picture I´m using as the avatar is also made by me. You can see it and one more with high quality on the link I mentioned before. It will be interesting to know, can you guess with what I made this drawings? <_<

 

Thank you,

Dmitry

 

P.S. sorry for possible mistakes in my English

Hello Dmitry, welcome to The Carving Path Forum! Thank you for introducing yourself and for the link to show us what you are doing.

 

I am always grateful to everyone who uses English as a second or third language. It enables so much good communication to occur between very interesting people! The internet brings us together, and when English can be used, it opens the door for us to learn about you and everyone else.

First of all welcome to the carving path Dmitry. I liked all the pictures of your work, I can also appreciate many hours of work and effort spent in making them by using only hand tools, and thank you for sharing them with us. Looking from a jewelers point of view, in your drawings, my favorites are the fish, and the letter knife.

 

By just looking at the beautiful picture in your avatar, I think you’ve done the small human like Greek mythological figure, “satyr”, either by pencil, by charcoal , or by pastel powder. Am I right?

 

Hey, your English is just like mine, don't wory about it :)

 

Best regards.

To Ekrem : No it is not a pencil, not charcoal or pastel powder ;) One more try?

 

Okay Dmitry, regarding the Satyr, how about after drawing the outline and punching the paper from behind with a round, ball like punch, and then charcoal the front and erase the rased parts some how for shading? If that's not it, I gave up :P

 

Best regards,

Hi Dmitry,

 

Thank you for the answer. It's emazing to make those drawings with ball point pens. Thanks for sharing. BTW, my grand parents also moved to Turkiye from Caucasus, from Dagestan.
