Silly me, I had the notion that I might actually near completion on a scrimshaw piece during the show. Ha! Nope! I'm glad I brought the microscope and worked on stuff there though, I think it was totally worth it to educate the masses as much as I could. I started with a blank 30x40mm (I know you think that's small, but I think that's big!) piece of ivory, after 4 days of steady interruptions (that's a good thing at an art show! getting any work done was a bonus!) this is how far along it was:
So, this'll get put away for a while. The Greatest Generation project is the big priority right now. Oh, it's a tiger, by the way. On a pendant. In black and white.
