I was disappointed with the Old Timer tool. Mine came with every tool dull. I still haven't gotten them totally sharp. I got the idea from a video that Mike Stinnet did on u-tube. He used a tool to put the scales on snakes that he carves on canes and walking sticks. I was going to try it with a blade but the u tool was so much faster and more consistent.

I'm not sure which brand but they make a shaped fish scale wood burning tip in more than one size. If you look back at my mermaid I used a wood burner for her scales.

Mr Watch thanks for sharing. I'm thinking about investing in a better wood burner. I thought about wood burning the scales in but the cheap one I have the heat is very inconsistent. I was considering highlighting the scales with it to see how it might turn out. What do you think about doing that?
I think I'm going to try to make a small fishing fly to mount in the mouth to hang it by.
