Probably 35 years ago I attempted scrimshaw a couple of times. Long enough ago that you could still buy ivory. I came across this piece and had always liked it - except it was on ivory. Just owning it now gives me guilt.
It pains me to look at it, so I was compelled to commit the image to another medium.
Proofgrade maple with default dark setting.
On the ivory, under magnification you drag a #11 Exacto blade to inscribe your design, and wipe with black India ink.
On a glowforge you just push a button.
