When I was very young my Dad told me “You’ll never be an artist, all you draw is skulls”.
Thanks for the support Dad.
PS : Screw You.

Slowly gathering funding for parts and tools to do a different kind of artwork, custom knives.  Should be interesting.  Need @lionarmory to front me some Classic Skull Beads (wink wink) #customknives #knives #knife #edc #knifemaking

Well both of my first attempts at scrimshaw have serious issues. The first (white one) some of the carving is to deep or rough, plus some surface issues caused spots where I don’t want them.  The second one (dark one) the lines and even the likeness to @xnikkixstilettox isn’t too bad (dime size face) but the surface seal failed big time and the bone went gray from the ink.
Fortunately I still have the pencil layout art so I can try again once I figure out how to get the grain sealed right.  Sorry @xnikkixstilettox maybe next time it’ll come out as pretty as you.

Ok, I admit it, sometimes really stupid things make me happy.

A quick sketch experiment with acid etching on brass shell casing scrap.  This will be fun when I work out a few bugs and do it on some knives and jewelry.

Just got my Coulter Precision scribe. This is a sweet little scribing tool, solid brass body, 2 sharper than f*ck Carbide tips (one super fine size), extra set screw, key and a nice little wooden tray.  If you’re into hobbies that a fine scribe is handy, this is the one.
