HOW TO LEARN TO CREATE PRODUCTS FROM THE MAMMOTHROWN
Creating products made from mammoth tusk is a process that requires endurance and skill. This means that the masters in this fine art are not born, but become.
Therefore, how much a person has enough assiduity and patience depends on him.
HOW LONG DO YOU LEARN BONE CARVINGS?
The craftsmanship of creating bone carvings goes back to gray times. But there were always craftsmen who succeeded in this business better. Modern bone cutters boast:
- Extensive theoretical knowledge of bone quality;
- Practical skills;
- Subtle artistic taste.
By bringing all these aspects together, it is possible to master the art of creating original things from the tusks of the mammoth, as well as whole compositions of them. The duration of training depends entirely on the student and on his desire to master a new craft. Some will be enough for this and six months. And others will take at least five years.
The teacher’s figure plays no less importance in matters of learning speed. This may be a true master of his craft, but his manner of presenting the material may not always differ in clarity.
HOW DO YOU TRAIN CUTTING FROM A BIVEN MAMMOTH?
In order to learn such a craft, it makes sense to resort to the execution of the desired compositions on the tusks of the third and fourth grade. These are affordable working materials. The third variety is represented by small bone fragments about 10 centimeters long and the same in diameter. The fourth is chips, which are formed only by fragments of natural material. With its help, it is realistic to create a decoration for souvenirs or small statues, toys and decorations.
As art is mastered, it is possible to switch to better second-class materials, which have been preserved in segments of up to 20 centimeters. But the first grade – ideally preserved tusks – only for professionals. This material has great aesthetic and material value. And therefore it is used to create exclusively elite souvenirs.
