I see nothing wrong with the piece. It looks perfect the way it is. Well done brah! BTW, how'd you seperate the 2 tones? I've heard of using elmers glue on what you don't want stained then wash it off after staining but have never tried it. I wonder if smoking/smoke staining the piece would've acheived the look you were going for. Does anybody know how to smoke stain bone here on TC?

I've try tape and nothing to cover the non-stained area. The stain seems to seep under the tape. I was thinking nail polish, as Elmer's might come off during the staining process.

Thank you all for the great comments.

This next piece was inspired by my middle school art teacher, Anne Funk. For a final grade she tied a drape into a knot and had me draw it. Simple graphite pencil and paper, it was a good challenge. The exercise has stuck with me for all these years, and it taught me a lot. I was hoping that I could apply the same lessons to bone.


So here's that piece...


it sort of folds over on itself like one of the twists I have done before...


I even played around on the backside...


and it looked pretty good in the right light.

What this little challenge taught me is that I need many more burrs in my arsenal, and sanding something like this can be a real pain!


Thanks for looking!

Yes, I agree, you should send it to your teacher. This is really Excellent Mango, very inspired. I Love that last little flip around the back,, very sensual and free.

4WDtiki and Benzart, thanks for the comments. I tried tracking my teacher down, but no luck. The school wouldn't give me her info, but I left mine.

Played my first soccer match in over 25yrs (county league, 18 & up) yesterday, my legs are reminding me I'm not 16 anymore! We lost 8-0, but we were wearing them down... another 60mins and I swear we would've scored a goal. I'm hoping next week ends in a 7-0 score, baby steps on improvement. So being as sore as I am today, I was trapped in the "studio" for a commission piece.


The customer wanted a hook similar to another I had previously done, but wanted a tapa pattern on it.

I think the tapa pattern lends itself well to engraving like this. I was tempted to try a stain, but I'll save that experiment for another day. Now I just need to figure out how to clean the polishing compound out of the nooks and crannies. My nylon brush wheel isn't doing the job, might have to switch over to needles or something.

Thanks for looking!

That's a real sweet piece, Mang! It's bold, and kinda bellbottomy, and the tapa works great on it!

Thanks all for the comments! I was a little worried about that tapa pattern, but it turned out alright.

SurfinTiki, the bit I used can be seen in this photo:

It would be a combination of the medium and super tiny inverted cones on the left. I need new burrs... they are much more rustier now.
