Knowing when to call it quits??!!...


Recommended Posts

Hello all.  Still playing with animal heads...


Last night I was working on another husky and realized I didn't have the right sized eye punch, so I threw the head in the vice and took my grinder with a wire wheel on it to clean off the scale.  As I was working (and paying attention) I noticed these heat colors emerge so I quickly dunked it in water to hold the colors and think I may call it quits here even though this is technically unfinished... 


My brother has worked at the University of Michigan for the past 20+ years so this may end up being a Christmas/B-day present....

No mistakes, happy accidents indeed. I don't know how many things I've reduced to scrap trying to get that ONE DETAIL JUST RIGHT. <sigh> Knowing when to stop is one of the harder things there is to learn and I believe you hit the sweet spot with that one.
