    What is hopefully a quick question.

    Thanks, I got online and did a little research and aside from the blender pen, which I have, and does work with ink jet and pictorico transparency sheets. I also found that prisma makes 3 different 40% grey merkers. Cool grey 40%, warm grey 40% and neutral grey 40%. I'm interested in trying this...

    Inkjet Transfer Recommendation

    One thing I've noticed, and maybe I just haven't figured out exactly how to use it correctly but the search function doesn't work all that well. Many times I've read a thread and tried to go back and find it later with keywords and I'll get nothing at all if I'm too specific or all the results...

    What is hopefully a quick question.

    Is the prisma marker the blender pen? Or another type of prisma marker altogether maybe? I'll take a look at them... For anyone else who isn't aware, the prisma blending marker also works great with the pictorico transparency sheets and a ink jet printer. I also still use my damar/acetone...

    English fine scroll -- layout on paper

    If I'm doing something serious I'll design and transfer my backbones using an ink jet and pictorico transparency film with a damar solution. But for small English scroll designs I'll often use sams transfer wax or any wax and I'll draw and pencil in the backbones, then when I'm happy I lightly...

    If you follow Mr Ken Hunt on Instagram he posts some amazing tips in his notebooks with illustrations of laying out fine English scroll and also filling the inside, and then details the outside tendrils as well.

    Jura Artgraver engraving machine?

    And last thing to add, I have never used a newer version of the GRS line. This gravermeister is my only experience with GRS equipment with the exception of my apex sharpening fixture I use but I'd still love to have a gravermax down the road. They each seem to have their own pros and cons...

    Jura Artgraver engraving machine?

    Another interesting note, a good friend of mine and retired bench jeweler recently dug out his old gravermeister and asked me if I'd look it over and give it a tune up. It gave me the chance to compare the gravermeister to my Shaun Hughes Home Made machine and the results were mind blowing. The...

    Jura Artgraver engraving machine?

    In my opinion REAL DEAL used engraving equipment holds it value amazingly well! Good luck finding even a used GRS or Lindsay system for maybe a couple hundred less than new and they sell immediately. But there is so much Chinese knock off junk out there which is a huge problem for those who buy...
