Scrimshawing the details consists of choosing what to add, what to leave out and what to postpone ’til later.  The rigging seemed a good place to start this morning, with the exception of the “rat lines” (rope ladders, per http://phrontistery.info/nautical.html).  With much of the rigging and all the wrapped sails now complete, the shading of the masts pretty well in place, it’s time to start on Squidward.  Please note the difference in the color of the ivory is due to the lighting at the time – I am not “antiquing” the ivory. There’ll be several more pics on flikr, but for now I need to get to the store for more domestic endeavors.
