How To Clean A Tooth

Recommended Posts

Hi Colleen. I have carved seal teeth before and as far as I know, they are referred to as Marine Ivory. I simply give them a sand with coarse sandpaper until I get the outer layer off. Then a once over with a finer grit before starting my design and carving. The designs I have done I have largely maintained the shape of the tooth. I have also kept some small sections of the original tooth for a design element, up to you. They were closed at the root and didn't seem to have a cavity.


Hope this helps, Billy.
