Degreasing and using cow bone.

Recommended Posts

Howdy all,

 

Not sure if this is as much of a concern with carving for netsuke or small sculptures, but thought it might be useful for someone:

Kinda involved process. How do you guys/gals prepare bone? Does anyone here use cow bone? Seems like a cheap readily available material, but I imagine the dimensions would be rather limiting. Was just wondering, as more exotic stuff to carve is hard to come by where I'm living right now.

 

Thanks in advance,

-Jake.

best process i know of is Petsmart

processed dog bones

nice dense clean white no grease ready to go no fuss no muss

enjoy

 

carven down rub em with linseed oil and after a while they look real good, i have done some combo pieces with walrus ivory carvings mounted in shadow box dog bone cabs other than the marrow grain on thewalrus its hard totell them apart
