Another Engraved Bison Horn
« on: December 30, 2021, 02:37:27 AM »
I have engraved the last of three nearly identical bison horns.  This one is more along the lines of my typical fraktur decorated horns.   The design is centered around two 12 point stars.  I like 12 point stars and I think they turned out well.  I didn't make the horn.  I just engraved it.

Mark ,I think you have to much time on your hands. Very nice,I remember you asking about what kind of ink to use not long ago.

Too much time on my hands is definitely something I do not have.  I put 15.5 hours into that horn over the month of December.

Wow, the work you did to that horn is mesmerizing! Did you use titanium white paint for the color? Also, could you post a close up of the star? Thank you.

Yes,  I used titanium white oil paint, but it was hardly necessary as the scratches were white enough.  I will see about a closeup on the star.
