My second prep ever


Alvaro

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I've done a preparation. I had to pause all my fossil work for a couple of months because I underwent major facial surgery a few months ago. Today, I finally went fossil hunting and found a couple of interesting things.

This is an incomplete bivalve (one valve is missing), but I still think it looks beautiful as a display piece. Despite being quite amateur, I feel like I achieved a pretty decent result.

What do you think? I'm eager to read your comments!

Nice job - Well done.

Nice bivalve fossil!


Hope you are all healed up from your surgery.
