I love this stylus. It is easy to use, very easy to master, and built to last. When creating sgraffito, it is my go-to.
If your looking for bold and beautiful sgraffito tool look no further! Also works really well in carving away larger spaces of underglaze from greenware. But what I have found really useful is that they still leave the edges crisp and clean. This is my must have tool for clearly defined lines and designs. And DiamondCore always provides beautiful lightweight tools with cushions for your fingers. This enables me to carve for hours on end without cramping my fingers.
I was a portrait artist before I started doing pottery. Now, a lot of my work features sgraffito and these tools feel natural to use like a pencil. They are strong and have nice grips which give them a high quality look & feel. I love how easily they carve through clay, especially when bone dry. This tool is on the medium side which allows for lines small enough for some detail, but big enough to make a contrasting impact.
This is perfect for larger lines, if you want a more dramatic bold sgraffito effect or deeper recesses! You can use pointy end for finer detail or side to clear more clay fast!
