Learn about Maritime Trade and Exploration.

Art In History's artifact replica is a sperm whale tooth from the time of great sea-faring activities such as whaling, exploration, and trade. Known artifacts from this era were made by whalers and/or sailors who were out at sea for extended periods of time. During sailors idle time, scrimshaw art was done utilizing crude sailing needles and other instruments. These tools were used to scratch, or etch, imagery into a sperm whale's tooth.

The motif provided is the ship The Mayflower. The Mayflower transported the English Separatists known today as the Pilgrims from Plymouth in England to the New World in 1620. The historical voyage led to the creation of the Plymouth Colony in America.

This kit includes: replica, sponges, disposable paint pallets, paint, Mayflower motif, and FREE lesson download. Lesson contains: history of the artifact, history of the time period, full color map, designs & motifs, and step-by-step decorating instructions.

Quality product
I bought these whale teeth for an art project experiment, rather than a homeschool session. I was expecting a small solid resin tooth, but the teeth were much larger at 7"x 5" x 3" made of ceramic (?) and hollow. You also draw on, rather than scratch in, the design like traditional scrimshaw. I will have to see if I'm able to scrape in the design I intended, however, as this is an experiment, it's no problem if this is not possible. The kit comes with everything you need for the intended project and is well packed and everything about the order process was easy. I will certainly buy here again should these prove to be successful for me and would look here again for other activities in future.

Project complete!
The whole kit can be done as well as it claims! Mine came out better than I ever thought It could! The video instructions are accurate, and easy to follow. Looks great in my man cave which is nautical. Think coastal Ma.
