Old piano key inlay on a Böker Gamma, pretty pleased with my first try at scratching ivory
The pattern is sweet.
Looks great! And I never would have thought of popping piano keys for an ivory source.
Thanks! Just something I sketched up to fill the space
Yeah, a coworker gave me a bag
Looks great. I have that same ceramic boker from when I was a kid. That update give it a great new look.
Very nice ! Great job
I think it looks great.
Was trying out a faceted point geometry, but had some tracking problems that gave me a little squiggle in the outlines Changed back to a round point, and tried out some cross hatching instead of stippling for the background...
Really nice! Ive been whittling/carving for a few years and I wish I had your talent
That looks fantastic!
Thanks! I know you dabble in scrimshaw too, I've seen some fine work from you as well
Man I love the look of that. What materials other than ivory can you Scrimshaw?
Pretty much anything that will take a clean scratch I imagine, so nothing particularly fibrous. I've seen scrimshaw on most of the ivory substitutes, various horn, paper micarta, etc.
Smooth bone works well.
Can't believe I forgot that, I've seen beautiful work by you on smooth bone
