Detailed Carving

With the help of Dremel, I am able to carve fine details into delicate materials such as a tagua nut (vegetable ivory).

I use two Dremels to create my carvings – the Multi Pro and the 400 Series XPR I begin by using a sanding drum to remove the outer husk on the tagua nut. Next, I draw the design on the outside of the nut and start to remove any unwanted material with a #192 high-speed cutter (Tip: After drawing the design, I spray it with a light coat of hair spray and let dry. This keeps the carved lines crisp). After the large cuts are made, I follow up with a #191 to smooth the lines. To fine-tune the design, I use the #107 high-speed cutter, and etch in the details with the #105. To smooth the large areas of the tagua nut, I use the #952 grinding stone and finish with the #7144 diamond bit. Finally, I polish the piece with the #429 felt polishing circle. To complete each creature creation, I finish with paint and a coat of urethane.

While an arduous task, without the help of a Dremel, the fine details would be more taxing. I sell the carvings through my business, Curts’ Creations, and demonstrate carving at shows in Davenport, Iowa. I have completed 45 carvings out of tagua nuts so far, and also carve walking sticks and deer antlers.
