Ellley, these pieces have some seriously fine detail. Looks like you are beyond the beginner ranks and have been for awhile.. Very nice work.

Thank you for the kind words! I'm trying with patience to improve, to go ahead finding a personal way to feel stones. I also worked on black onyx, I like it very much because is like a sketch, and allows some possibilities to graduate black and white. But I have a question: using on onyx the burr like a pencil, very soft on surface, do I need water flow or I can work also dry?

I post now a sea urchine tiki new...

YES, Excellent Tiki Urchin, COOL!
You can use the diamond as you speak dry at low speeds but remember the water is to cool the tool. If it begins to get hot you need a wet sponge near by. The worse that will happen is you will need to buy another bur sooner than later.
Nice to see you back carving!

Oh, Ben ! First of all, what about your hand? Are you better?
I do hope so
Happy you like my urchine, I'm trying to go deeper, and the smooth material helps me. I like and I prefer soft materials.
Ben yes, it's clear, to tell the truth I'm trying to use burrs that are 'tired', with low speed. The problem with onyx and water is that I don't see what I carve. Everything is black and also using a soft pencil like 8B at a certain moment I don't see anything..
speed is about 14-15
one thing is sure, better water than dust, but I protect with a mask
Ciao !

Ellly, this last guy is Really excellent. It takes a Lot of control to carve this soft material and you are becoming a PRO at it. Well Done.
