My Current Project. . .
I always have a project of my own design/object/material. More often than not, it's a project that I work on while at a show so people can see me working and get an idea how scrimshaw is done. Therefore it takes longer for it to be completed. When I am at home I work on custom orders that take priority.
My current project is on a piece of a cape buffalo boss. The boss is part of the horn at the top of the head. It's the first cape buffalo material I had to scrim, so I figured it has to have a cape buffalo on it. It will all be in full color and for sale when it is finished. I have not figured out what the cost will be yet but when I do I will list it here.
This piece is hard to photograph because of the curve and the polished surface. Getting the lighting right is a challenge for sure.
