Don't laugh now......

This is a butt plug (yes that is what they call it) from a custom pool cue. One of my clients wanted me to scrim a frog on it. Would someone let me know what they think? It is shown actual size.

I think its stunning! The detail you managed on such a small object is tremendous!

If my wife still shot for a ladies team, I'd consider asking you to replicate one for her, as she loves frogs and turtles. Alas, she doesn't and her cue rests at the rear of our closet.

Okay, sorry for too much information...

The bottom line is: its a very fine piece of work!

Thank you Bill! I love to scrim when it is small- this little guy is not even 2" tall. That is when scrim works the best for me. I would love to do work for you anytime- just give me a holler. My rates are not that expensive either. I specialize in key chains and belt buckles....

Ki- Scrim is short for scrim-shaw. Scrimshaw is when you draw something out and scratch the design on with what they call a scrim tool. I use a carbide tip tool that looks like a pencil, only the point is very very sharp. Once you do the design, you put india ink over the item, the ink runs down into the scratches creating the design and you wipe up the rest of the ink. You just keep working at the design until it finally takes shape and is finished.

Wow! That's awesome! I hope you'll show us the budda too! I'm an artist also. I graduated from Columbus College of Art and Design with a BFA in Fine Arts. I mostly do oils and acrylics.

This is a perfect example of never starting to read a thread half way down! I thought all of you had lost your marbles....

Is the Christmas season to hectic? Did you just have "one" too many?

***On a side note: Hissy, very well done!***

(BuNN I'm having TROUT for dinner The kitties are having the head! 10Q for the free meal!)
I know if it was for me, I would love it, the detail is fantastic! I'm sure this person will be sending a lot of work your way once the guys at the pool hall see it! It is great work.
(BuNN the trout is a little fishy smelling...I'll have to send it back! *fling*)
