Sand dollar prep

Recommended Posts

Darktooth

Today I decided to try and prep a Sand dollar that was found by @digit and given to me at our March hunt at Cookie Cutter Creek. There was a good amount of matrix covering the top and bottom of this echinoid. While my main focus was uncovering the top portion I decided to also work on the bottom as well. Unfortunately I deleted the before pic by accident, but I took a pic that shows the pile of debris that I have removed so far. This is a work in progress so I will post more pics as I continue to work on it. First pic shows the top 2nd pic shows the bottom. As you can see from the pic all I have used so far is a pin vise and dental pic.

I was able to retrieve  a pic that was posted in my trip report. It is not the greatest pic, but shows the echinoid in the top corner of the pic before any matrix was removed.

Looks like a fun project. Can't wait to see the final photo to see in what condition that sand dollar was under all that matrix.

 

Cheers.
