Fish Scaling and Scale making specialty tools.

Nichrome Wire
This is the exact blend and brand of wire used in my DVD course and in my studio.  There are hundreds of different blends of nichrome wire on the market today, not all nichrome is the same.  Some blends are too soft and some are too hard, rendering them useless for making wood burning pen tips.  This blend is perfect for making tips, shapes easy and self hardens with heat.  The larger 16 gauge diameter provides enough material to create a wide range of scale shapes and other shapes as needed.

As seen on the Scale DVD Course

The perfect tool for quickly rolling in a small raised diamond pattern on fish carvings.  Unlike a knurling tool, this tool leaves a raised knurl effect that can be easily highlighted or painted to look like realistic small scales.  I use it often for trout and baitfish carvings.  The use of this tool is demonstrated in my new "Classroom Series" Video Course - Creating Realistic Fish Scales.  Scale an entire fish in under 15 minutes!  Instructions included.
