Default Hello from N CO new to engraving

Been a member for a while. I am finally getting my setup completed, took a class years ago (more than I want to admit) at CSU as part of an art class. At the time it was print making. I am an arist of 30+ years the focus was painting on silk a good number of years. My family is grown, gone now doing their own thing and the kids tell me, mom it's time you ventured into your dream of engraving. I'm practicing when I can and building what I can to get started again. Getting my gravers lined up, focused on learning sharpening, it's a task for certain. I tooled leather for years, love scroll work but, rusty at it now, it's coming along. I use an andriod tablet with Infinite Painter, it works well.
Nice to meet everyone here, learning from the collective wealth of knowldege.

Hello, I feel a little identified with your story, I trust that in a few sessions you will be happy with your prints.

Hi Andy
Welcome To The Engraving Forum.
Looks like you are all set now.You will just swap the leather for metal to engrave.

All the best.

Dean, Thank you. Oh yes it takes a bit to be brave enough to post. Sharpening without a budget to buy the right tools has left me gobsmacked. Saving up again, drawing more now with out good sharp tools while I wait. So impatient tho.

Yes, I am slow getting started with my practices until I can get sharper- in so many ways. Thanks
