"Adanced Scrimshaw Techniques"
by Jim Stevens
"For scrimshaw artists and carvers, this book is vital."




"Jim has put together a great book for new and old scrimers, I thought I knew it all but I've picked up
a few usable tips."
Rodney R. Lacey, Cairns Australia
Amazon Review


"Jim picks right up where he left off in his first book, Scrimshaw Techniques. More info on ivory and
how to care for it, restore it, re-inking it, determining the difference between real and fakes, it is
just plain educational. And the chapters on using power tools just keep on providing information
that I have not found anywhere else. Excellent follow-up and another must-have."
Mark Szymanski
