Default Re: Carl Bleile engraving with NEW PICTURES template tool & Lindsay Artisan

Thanks for noticing my posts. All of my template tools are designed to work with hammer and chisel or power(see pictures below), I have tested them in both modes and found them comfortable to use with the least ammount of sharpening. The narrow V is capable of many tasks one of which is removing background in areas to tight for a flat, it may take multiple passes but sometimes that is the only way. The work you see on the shotgun frame is my type of simpler floral scroll with medium relief background, if it were to be sculpted I wouldn't have put in the shading lines, instead I would have started hogging out metal to get the shaping started.

PS. On the pratice plate I am useing a deep outline tool(red templates), on the shotgun I'm useing the sculpting and background relief tool (blue template)
