Short Eared Parliament' (back of the left moose antler) by Shane Wilson

In this phase, I have sanded the upper left antler: front, edges and back. The image above shows how I will leave the original antler surface on the majority of the back antler - sanded gently to remove sharper portions and expose some of the white to transition nicely with the tines and front of the sculpture.

'Candle Ice Two' (Phase 1) by Shane Wilson

The antlers have been 'skinned' and prepared to receive the design, which will be created directly on the surface of the antlers. Skinning the antlers is effected by lightly sanding the surface with an angle grinder and sanding disks.

I have used a variety of angle grinders over the years and have found the
Walter 4.5" slip-clutch grinder to be a superior tool. It operates very smoothly, with no wrenching action on start-up, and disk changes are a breeze.
