Default Re: How to Scrimshaw with an AirGraver - by Ray Cover

Years ago I did stipple a lot of my engraving images. Now days I use a true cut dot method rather than stippling. In short you can do this on metal but it is not the same as bulino which actually cuts the dots out.

If you use this stipple method on metal you will have to sharpen punches more often but it will work.
