Default Re: Damascening an Elk with an Artisan

Barry, I have been trying your damascening and am not having any success. I am using copper and brass, I anneal them before I try to place them. I am undercutting the circumfrence, I am cross hatching with a flat with 45 degree face and no heel. I can and do inlay with 30 thou material but this 10 thou is causing me fits. I could be cutting my outline too deep. Also what saw blade are you using in your jewelers saw. I have no. 3 and it hasn't enough teeth per inch to cut the 10 thou material smoothly.
