I googled "fossil ivory" "carving" & came upon this thread. 24 hours and 60+ pages read I feel more confident than ever that I CAN do it.
AMAZING tutorial, talent & craftsmanship! So thank you for giving me that one last push that I needed to get me started. I'm still in awe at the beautiful pieces

p.s. I registered for this site just to post this message!
Well welcome and good luck in your carving!

I have enjoyed your thread so much!
You have me inspired to try it!! But, I am not sure where to find and buy the Ivory. Can you help me with this?
Would you sell the raw material?
