NOT me Scott!
Sent it to IBILD(Brady Watson);http://www.ibild.com/
Nervous as Heck sending Soapstone Inuit carving out, as you can scratch it with you fingernail while rubbing it with natural face oils for patina!!
Wrapped in Fleece and bubble wrap,shipped, got a call from Brady asking if it was OK to Talc it (it was too shiny), and then got it back unscathed(and cleaned:) within a week
And the scan 3 days earlier;
Had the scan for a year and a half , but was LOUSY at Cut3D....so didn't touch it till VCP 8.5 came out.
Scan was so High resolution I could see the file marks I needed a magnifying glass to see in person.
Can't recommend IBILD enough!!
May send my Inuit "Shaman" head, now I'm more experienced, and won't worry about Brady's respect for it, and the care he took.
MAY try a 2-4 sided cut sometime in future in Macassar now I have the Tiny Radius 3"TBNs and some more experience.
Probably start a separate thread.
Walnut bark came off in one piece:) MAY play with it as it's a perfect fit...
...or add a small freeform Alaskan Black Jade carving on the flat.
Enough of my hijacking
LIKE the details like the goggles/beard/rope/ and especially the blimp and it's tail!
You've gotten REALLY good:)
How's it coming? Ready to carve?
