No, Jason, I've been doing scrimshaw on and off for about 25 years or more -- But I've just started doing the "stipple" technique (Thousands of tiny dots that the ink goes in to create the color) which gives a much more true depth and color to the piece...

Beautiful work preacher.I would like to purchase one just like it if you should sell.
Thanks Cal - I might sell some pieces later - Right now I'm just trying to perfect the new technique... I'd like to branch out into knife handles, pistol grips, turkey calls, antler art and such since my main work is wildlife art (Unlike most scrimshanders who focus mostly on nautical themes)I'd love to have enough inventory one day to actually be able to set up at one of the outdoor shows somewhere and sell some - it would be great to have a live display of the work actually being done, and I would love the opportunity to meet and talk with the many people who browse around during those shows...

Glad you did Tommy. I somehow missed this thread back in December.

The buckle is absolutely beautiful!:clap: I have a good portion of my Pyrography book dedicated to the stippling method using a burning pen. I incorporated many photo's of an artist here in Georgia who used the stippling on gourds. He was truly awesome.
