    Hi Chickenscratcher,,Thanks for the kind words, I can give you a tip, if you dont have the lyndsay colbolt carbide gravers, give them a try,,they cut real nice, and hold up much better than others I have tried.

    Hi Chickenscratcher,

    I use Higgins Black Magic ink. As for your ivory staining are you using renaissance wax? Wax the piece before you start any work and between applications of ink/paint and that should stop the staining part. The only other explanation would be your surface was not polished fine enough. If your finish on the piece has small scratches the ink will get in them and look like staining. Oh and it's not uncommon to apply ink or paint a couple times or more to fill all the holes/work you have done. If you have any other ?'s just ask

    Hi Chickenscratcher, ( where does this name come from?). Thanks for your comment on my work. I have been lucky during my career, to have worked for customers who appreciated owning unique items made from precious metals.
