Leopard in the Night – Initial Scrimming

Leopard-On-CowhornBeen so busy with gardening (and a gardening book) I haven’t had time to scrimshaw. Kept my eye out for materials, though, finding cow hooves (which I may give to the dog), then I ran across horn tips and decided it was time to do this piece.  Have to find a better pigment, but here it is so far:

Thinking the next one should be higher, though the same size. This will allow the whole scrimshaw to be seen at once, and will be somewhat easier to scrim.  During the process, I had taken a couple of pictures where in some cases it looked more like a bear than a leopard.
