Engraving day 5
Today we worked on putting the cat claws and other cuts we learned into scrolls. I was having some problems with my onglette engraver at first, so that's why the first two scrolls have some problems on their spine.
I was able to fix that and made the final scrolls bursting out of the flower.
The type of scrolls we were doing were bright cut western style engraving...at least I believe that's what it's called.
All of the work done this week has been very tiny, so don't let the photos deceive you. Most items were probably 6mm-8mm at their largest and 1mm at their smallest.
