Default Re: Damascening an Elk with an Artisan

Neil, you cant do this very well with brass, and copper is not as easy as gold, and in damascening, the thinner and flatter, the better. I dont know what saw blades I use but they are vey fine.
Jroettger, the raised relief is the thickness of the gold, the burr field is very fine in damascene.
Thanks guys. . . .
