Showcase cover image for Kolrosing

Project Information

These are some spoons I carved for my little ones a while back. There has been some argument about which belongs to who. I decided to try my hand at a little kolrosing. You can see that I've overshot my lines in a place or two but overall I like the look. I'm thinking I will pick up a knife for the purpose as my current three inch knife is a little tough to hold/control for this work. The circle carving is a coffee bean as that is my son's nickname.

Before I commented, I had to look up/study what kolrosing meant. Glad I did as I think this will be a great new technique for me to try.

You did a great job on these 2 spoon handles. Keep on, keepin' on !

For anyone who doesn't want to look it up, kolrosing is when you make a cut in the wood and rub in coal dust (or something black) to set it off. Interesting technique, I might have to try it.

Thanks Jay, you should give it a go. Other than not overshooting your lines its pretty easy to do. I use cocoa powder instead of coal but I hear fine ground coffee works well too. Rick, thanks for explaining I should have covered in my post.
