You think it turned out ok?


Recommended Posts

Used a sewing needle and acid (water and 45% vinegar mix) to prep this due to size. Never used to technique before and finished it off with Paleobond. 

 

Did it come out ok? I had no choice but to Paleobond as I loosened a part of the cheek spike while prepping. 

 

The pygidium is 8mm long and 10 mm wide. Mississippian Golconda formation.

I like it. I wonder what else you might reveal in the hash with a tooth brush and your weak acid mix.

I'm thinking of using the acid and needle some more on some other areas. This was 2/3 covered when I found it. Now that I have some idea of this method I hope it doesn't take as long next time I use it.

The tail is called a pygidium and the object is a genal spine from a trilobite.

Looks excellent. And I too would probably go at other areas with the acid treatment some more. That is a great looking hash plate

Nice prep! Lots of bryozoans too, do you think you're going to prep any more of the rock?
