    Third bulino attempt

    So...I started another little bulino sideproject. Last one was the elephant which was really fun to do. When I started cutting the elephant, I cut the outlines for this rhino on the back of that same plate. I know that one of the comments on the elephant warned me about cutting outlines, because...

    Engraved Zippo practice

    Finished the first side of a brass Zippo I bought to fiddle around with. First mistake I made was buying a regular one instead of an armour cased Zippo. Somewhat missed up the bottom, as there is a significant flat spot there. Slowly starting to get to grips with shading, allthough there are...

    Some practice scrollwork...

    I tried to get an evenly balanced design, but then messed up here and there. Some design flaws became very apparant whilst cutting, which I tried fixing on the fly. My turntable was getting all "stiffed up" for some reason while I was cutting the outlines, so I made a new one. I think that a...

    Another little bit of practice

    I figured I would try something that is a bit closer to what I normally do for a living. I have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to bulino and I'm not sure if this would actually classify as such. I will call this one done for now though as the plate itself is all scratched up, as I didn't...

    Drawing practice...

    Been trying to get a feel for scrollwork, which is harder than it looks. Took the advice given(partially for now as I still need to order some books) to look at Sam's dvd. So I did and started drawing. Please feel free to break it down into the probably many mistakes, so I can see if I can...

    Small practice plate(after watching Sam's dvd)

    So...instead of just trying to keep trying, I ordered the beginners dvd from Sam. I have to say...if one is new to engraving, order it!! Just finished watching it last night and started this plate this morning. About 4 hours or so later, I can clearly see a huge difference in my cutting and how...

    Reworking my first "project"

    Engraved this plate about a month ago. I finished it, but wasn't happy with the outcome(duh). This is going to be a plate on the top of a footswitch for my wife. Since my laserprinter is in the shop and I didn't have a transfer ready for a practice plate, I decided to try and rework this thing...
