Taking it slowly......

I'm cutting cautiously, I know how quickly I can get carried away with the scorper! This time I'm making more use of a little practise block , just a boxwood scrap, that I keep near to try out tool textures and work out how to tackle certain passages on the block. To make my cut marks clearer I'm rubbing a little talc into the lines. It all brushes out in the end, and my block smells nice as well!

Sue... This is so exciting to watch the evolution. Even if you didn't do the fireplace, this is delightful!

Wow Sue, this looks great already - can't wait to see the end result.

Lovely work - sometimes, when engraving, one knows that a print will come out well. Keep up the good work. I hope that you will be submitting to the SWE later this year.

Cor, looking very, very good! The socks are just brilliant, somehow - soggy and soft.

That rug is looking really good.
