Some recent stuff I've been doing. Bought some real nice cooked Burlington (Avon, Crescent, etc) from a guy on Facebook.  Very slick stuff. IMG_E2498.JPG




A piece of Spanish Diggings.  Normally I would touch it up further, but liked the tip color so I left it.

I got a Thebes DVD for Christmas and am happy with the way it turned out. Again, it isn't very thin, but saving the colors was the objective.  Had to bring it in a little bit as a punch notch flake rolled the edge of the ear off.  Some real nice cooked material I got from Butch at the Lake Benton Knap In this past August.

Very nice work, I too am guilty of thicker over thinner to save color. It’s almost like (sometimes) they refuse to be multi colored.

Swataramike , you have talent. All points are wonderful. I tried to pick a favorite, but I finally just decided they all are. Flintstone, those look like pink ice sickles. Not quite sure what they could be off of.
