Chuck send me an address . I will send a cross section of scrap. I will buff the surface so you can scratch right away. On the buffalo horn try just scratching the highlight areas. Reverse is dramatic and you can see your working easier as you scratch. Fill it with white acrylic paint, and wipe away the excess immediately. I want in my lifetime for scrimshaw to be accepted as a mainstream art form. I will help any scrimschander get going. ...HutcH
Most of the lines are sharp edges with a difference in depth and width. I figured it wasn't a real tooth but I didn't buy it for its authenticity. I bought it more for an attention getter and a display piece. I am happy with it. I sure appreciate your expertise. I have Boones site and as soon as I am able to get back to work, I'll be buying some materials. I feel that I need to practice on some different materials and continue developing my skills. Thanks for your input Hutch!
Yes it is a cast unit. The image may be cast also check the edges of the scribed lines if they are a little rounded on the edge it amy be cast. The perimeter art without much interior shading also may indicate a cast image. If you want to scrim your own cast tooth check out Boone Tradeing Post. They have anything you need for scrimshaw. They carry cast and real items as well as findings, belt buckles , pendant and raw mammoth ivory and materials.Keep scratching... HutcH
I suspect it is a resin cast but here's a picture of the bottom for your opinion Hutch. Thanks.
Chuck is your tooth real or a resin cast tooth? The flat bottom has me suspect. Do you have an open area at the bottom or is it solid flat accross?
Jan, Yes it is. He shipped it with a letter of apology. He said he didn't really understand eBay "stuff". I think maybe it's because I filed a complaint with eBay? Anyway, I like it. It will be a nice attention getter for my Scrimshaw knives whenever I set up a display.
Charles, is that it? He decided to ship it? That is fantastic
Recently purchased. It'll make a great piece for display whenever I get a chance to set up a table somewhere.
My first purchase. It's a small piece but it's a start.
Thank You, I am glad to like it .
