The process begins with a meeting with the client in order to get to know their needs and experience.
Here Stefano will gain an understanding of where they hunt and often see pictures of the client’s dog and hunting experiences. It is important to establish a clear understanding of the natural environment in order to create total realism. Even the weather encountered during the hunts can be detailed.
Typically, the engraving is to be done on a best quality sidelock shotgun. This allows three game scenes to be created. Stefano and the client discuss ideas fot the different game scenes as well as the type of ornamentation to be used to fram them .
