Linda Karst Stone

Linda Karst Stone, one of the leading scrimshanders in the field today, has been featured in numerous publications. Her ability to combine art with ivory has earned her a successful career in the art of scrimshaw.

Linda has invited you into her studio as she transforms a simple piece of ivory into artwork with photographs, a tool, and color. This amazing two part video first focuses on transferring an image from a photograph to a piece of ivory using a graph and a pencil then etching the complete image in place. The second disc brings to life a black and white image using pigments and various degrees of etching. Linda patiently teaches you her techniques, tools, tips, scale, guides, methods, shadows, depth, highlights and inks in order bring character and dimention to your scrimshaw art - and ALL without power tools.
