Carving opal with a Dremel: Video

caving opal with a dremel - rough piece

Last week on Facebook, we mentioned this amazing piece we were going to do a carving opal video on.

Here is the video showing Justin taking you through the step by step of carving opal with a dremel.  So if you’ve ever wanted to try carving, now is your chance with all the tips right here in this video.

The main equipment you will need is a Dremel or similar hand-held rotary tool. You’ll also need a selection of bits including:

  • hard diamond bits
  • soft nova bits
  • felt tips
  • dowel wood bits

The video is quite long so you’ll have plenty of time to see exactly what he is doing but if you need more help, check out our earlier carving video here.
