Synopsis

Learn techniques every scrimshaw carver needs for true proficiency in this traditional art form. Over 130 clear color photos illustrate ivory carving with hand and power tools, color and power engraving and painting, and practices in the care, conservation, repair, and restoration of ivory scrimshaw objects. Along with practical instruction on carving and decorating, the detailed text provides vital information on scrimshaw fakes, reproductions, resources, and appraisals. A unique feature is the extensive glossary, providing explanations of scrimshaw engraving, sculpting, carving, and collecting terms found collectively nowhere else. Artists using this book will gain an array of techniques and invaluable information. For scrimshaw carvers, this book is vital.
