It wsa a lost art because it was not shared.
You see an art that is not shared is lost . When you die the knowledge dies with you. This is the reason that I share my knowledge with others.
I may not be as well know as some makers, scrimshaw artists, or engravers; but many of them share my ideas about this.
This is something that one of the makers of the late 50's, 60's, and 70's, and later a Master Engraver Ralph Bone had more than one discussion about while he was my Engraving Instructor.
This is just my two cents worth.
But, as each of us are different so are our thoughts on this matter.
You see I to would like to learn some of the aspects of this technique but to apply in a different method.
