Port Clinton Artists’ Club member gets work showcased on the big screen

Helena Bonham Carter in the Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter, racked in 89 million dollars at the box office this summer. To be part of that for Linda Karst Stone was priceless. Linda, a member of the Port Clinton Artists’ Club who now resides in Texas, works in the art of scrimshaw. In the movie The Lone Ranger, Helena’s character Red Harrington has an ivory leg. In February 2012 Linda Karst Stone was chosen to create the prop for the movie. Linda practices the traditional method of scrimshaw, working by hand and not by machine. A steel instrument is used to make lines or crosshatching into the surface, in this case ivory, then the scratches are filled with black India ink and  the excess is cleaned from the surface.
