    I had a friend from NY, Herb Trefeisen, who did some fantastic engraving prior to his passing. The last engraving that he was playing with was unlike anything that I had ever seen. Rather than cutting threadlike strips of steel to create a scene, the picture was made up of tiny digs/gouges of different depths that created the illusion of shading. He last did a set of 90-T sideplates that were just beautiful. I don't know if I have discribed this very well but I'd like to know if anyone Knows what it's called and who does it.

    After looking at your link, I'm guessing that it was Bulino. My friend often offered to engrave a gun for me but I couldn't decide which gun or what I'd like on it. I waited too long. Herb was a real talent.

    That would most certainly be Bulino style of engraving. Looks great, but in my opinion its not suitable for a blued finish as bluing will cover up too much of the art detail.

    French grey or or one of the nitrate finishes work with Bulino.

    Also, while some can do almost photo realism with Bulinon techniques, I'm not sure how well it would hold up on a seriously used shotgun.

    Cheers

    Ed, wasn't that engraving glossary a treat? I'm used to looking at stuff and saying, 'hmmmm ,,, I didn't know that ...'

    Reading abt engraving, I realised real quick, I'd have to go to school for 2-3 years just to get up to ignernt.

    I have a Cousin who makes scenes with crushed glass. He usually has 1 or 2 pieces hanging in the lobby of the Association For The Blind. The scenes have back lighting and it's said that the blind can actually "see" the pictures. They were featured on local TV back in the summer. I am not an expert in art but I think his works would be very costly if they were for sale.
    He will not sell anything, he doesn't need the money and he feels that if they are sold, they will end up in someones den and the majority of people will never see them. Larry
