Well gang, I guess all this talk of horns and such has me wanting a somewhat fancy powder horn. I'd like to get one that my friend makes but since I haven't worked in a 7 weeks due to a back injury, that isn't happening. And this is something I can do without strain to my back. So, the next best thing is try it myself. Now remember, I've never done this type of horn before so don't expect a masterpiece. I'll give it my best shot and hope it doesn't end up in the trash before it's all over. Here's where I'm at so far....................... I scraped a horn smooth that I had then marked it for the basic pattern I want. Then I rough carved the design in. Here was the first mistake. I carved it too thin in a couple places and now I have some small holes to fill. After the patch is set up. I'll scrape and polish smooth, then color.
