How to Scrimshaw and Carve Ivory - Blackie Collins

Detailed step-by-step instructions explain how you can enjoy practicing America's first art form. This book includes information on basic scrimshaw techniques, scrimshaw tools and how to make them, preparation of the ivory, and a very useful page of tips on scrimshaw. The heart of the book are the four projects that the author takes you through start-to-finish, with each step fully illustrated: Making a pendant, Handgun Grips, Wood Duck on a Belt Buckle, and the obligatory Ship on a Whale's Tooth. Illustrated with over 100 excellent-quality photographs. This book is every bit as useful for all of the various alternatives to traditional ivory sources (elephant, whale, walrus etc.), such as the synthetics ("alternative ivory" et al.) and vegetable "ivory" (tagua bean et al.) Softcover, 45 pp.
