    English scroll design by Bram Ramon

    Hi Bram, we're there once photos that go along with this article on elnglish scroll? I don't see any attachments now so maybe they disappeared?

    Transfer Using IPad Pro and Procreate

    Hey Andrew I've asked a couple people for any help or tips on different brushes/pens with no reply yet.

    Sculpted Engraving Using the Enset

    By the way I've never tried sculpting yet but this video makes me want to rush and buy one just to try the sculpting power . I wish there was more videos on the enset about the different ranges in use. Faster stoke with the lighter striker head. Some fine line shading etc. I see a lot about the...
