Scrimshaw Practice

Standard

CIMG1265After a weekend away (and 2 days of no blogging!), it is nice to be back and making something again.  This is an etching of a kookaburra on my practice piece of plastic that came with the kit.  I am pleased with how it came out, but I have to admit, it is not easy!

Now I want to carve on the little piece of ivory I have.  As you can see, it is tiny – a bit bigger than my fingernail.  I am also lacking inspiration.  Does anybody have any good ideas that would look classy on this little piece of ivory?  Let me know!

  1. Wow–the kookaburra is amazing (as is your nail polish). In keeping with the bird theme, how about a crane or a flamingo or something? A tall bird to fill the shape of the space?

    • Thank you! And I really like that idea… I’ll have to go look up some pictures! My biggest issue was the fact that it’s skinny and long, but a tall bird would work. Thanks again:)
