I will show you on this 2 DVD Foundation class how to really get into Bone Carving.
We’ll create two amazing designs on the way and learn all the skills to get started in this fascinating hobby.
I’ll show you in very clear and concise steps how to work with basic tools, even just using only hand tools to create a fantastic piece of jewellery.
Working on these two wonderful designs you will learn a great set of skills that you can apply to many designs including your own creations.
I will also show you the use of machine powered tools to make the process more efficient as well as the right balance between machine powered and hand tools.
I’ll teach you all the necessary steps to design a carving, cut it out, work with a variety of tools and cover cleaning and preparation of the bones.
I’ll even show you how to incorporate a beautiful shell inlay into the design.
You will get over two and a half hours of high quality in depth tuition on these DVDs, filmed in HD quality and with very clear super close still shots to really show you what I’m doing and how to do it yourself.
