Blues and Greens
« on: October 15, 2017, 06:05:51 AM »

Have not been here in quite some time.
Had a busy summer, and over the last month, a lot of time was taken up planing for the first time ever visit of a relative from my Austrian side here in Hong Kong. and a BBQ for nearly 20 people, up at the cabin. All done now. Was nice, but way to stressful to do regularly.  :icon_sunny: :dontknow: :LOLOL:

All said, I still found some time in between to tinker with some stones.

Continued to work on some breakaway from the slag received from England.....

And for our monthly challenge: I set out to make a leaf from a stone I found at one of our beaches here; still no idea what it is, but suspect it might be some type of amethrine.
Then, thought of it as rather plain, and made a Fire Agate bug and a tiger-eye frog to fill the picture.
In the picture, sanded up to 2000 grit paper (still not polished to-date)

Now, there should be more time for stones coming up.......
Thanks for looking, remain with best regards, Kurt

That slag sure is nice.
AND AH TINY FROG Very cute. All three pieces fit together very well, with the scale of the frog and beetle to leaf. Wonderful carving.

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

I love the frogs and the slag is so delicate and nicely patterned.  Great work as always kurt, I wish I had your skill.

Kurt:

I love the beetles; they're great. The frog and leaf are really nice, but the beetles are wonderful.
