Default Sculpted engraving step by step tutorial - Ray Cover

Ray is on a roll! He has been on another on-demand tutorial for EngravingLessons.com and has it completed.

Sculpted engraving step by step tutorial - Ray Cover
This tutorial takes you step by step through Ray's process of creating sculpted scrolls that he used on his Dante's Inferno theme knife. This covers the tools needed as well as the step by step methods. Ray used a three step process for this sculpting. The initial carving with gravers, refining the shape with punches, and finishing with stones and polish. All three of these procedures are covered in detail. Ray also gives a short description of alternative methods. You also get to see how to create the raised domed panels for doing bulino scenes or other engraving on.

Please note that this tutorial covers the sculpting portion of this project only. The bulino part of the project is not included.

Great Tutorial! Would like to see an end shot or a line drawing of that Very Small Flat graver (Scooper) with the 55 Degree face and 30 Degree heel. A little confused what you mean by, turning on an end... Are any of your available castings similar to this, such as the Alice Scroll? Thank you for the time you share! Robin

Hey Robin,

Thanks for buying the tutorial. I'm glad you like it. I went back and added a couple pics of that graver and a brief description. Let me know if that helps.

Unfortunately I did not take a casting off that project. That knife just had too many moving parts and cavities that I was afraid I would be digging mold rubber out of it for a week if I tried a casting from that one. The Alice knife was not sculpted.

Ray

Ray, Thanks for this tutorial. The flat graver with the 30 degree heel has solved one of my relief problems with tearing up the edges. I made up two of them and the smaller one works the best. I made up some assorted sanding sticks and they work great. The TiteBond glue that I used doesn't want to stick to the 1200 Norton Blackice sandpaper for some reason but I try something different tor the next batch. These two tips along with the tutorial made this a great buy.
Thanks,
Scott
