most recent 2
« on: June 04, 2012, 10:04:31 pm »
had a tiny bit of time over weekend so i rushed these 2 out,
the "ishi" is my worst point to date, took lots of time & pressure flaking and it came out thick and ungainly, the bigger one took a half hour with notches (stalled early) and is nice and thin, almost all precussion,
i am realizing a pattern developing here.... P.S. i know the notches are wrong for ishi, they stalled way early so i tried notching on the bottom(which i fluted) only to punch out the whole thing
this is # 8 and 9

Good looking points.  Notching can be tricky, if the platform dosen't look right don't try it. Otherwise your notch may stall.
