Wow, that is truly fine work. Good job!
I also use the Dremal for thinning around my eyes, nose, and lips. I use the sandpaper disc. I like the disc because you can change the courseness of the disc if you like. I used to use the skife and always seemed to cut holes in lips. The dremal give you so much better control IMO. I never tried the course stone. I'll give that a try. Also the wet hyde never seems to affect the sanding disc.
I have used the sanding drum and it works, but I can see an advantage with the stone as Trapper stated, you can work off the corner of the stone.
Thank you JoeHunter , appreciate that !! Yes MarcA , i find myself using the edge of the stone more for the real fine detailing on the eyes , a new stone might have a more pronounced edge , be good to wear it in as you can see mine is rounded a bit , sure works great !!
Gona give it a shot !
You can wear the edge of the stone grinder by running it against a brick or cinder block. Tried using a coarse farriers' rasp one time and blew out the stone ... shattered it! Since then I've broken them in with a piece of cinder block I have under my work table. Lesson learned! ;D
It's got a cold, secretions around the eye....
When I went to school, This is the only method I learned is with a dremal tool and a sanding drum ...It works well but I think that stone wheel would be the cats pajama's...LOL Got to give that a try.... Thanks for that little tip ....
stop tooling in the deep crease just below the bottom ridge of the lid.
Might help if you put a picture up for the man! Hell ... you have this very one right there at WASCO!
Trapperr, this was taken by Sallie Dahmes some years ago and is still a good reference.
While your Deer eye is close, notice the lack of a hard crease line at the lower lid. It is a bit further down, and much softer.
I should have pointed that out myself, but it is still a nice eye, and will get better as you go.
It is a pet deer in the shop . is it house broken. lol .So good ,wish I could turnem out like that you should do a tutorial
