Twisted Steel Double Point is used for dry point/scribe, adding detail or tone of a linear burr type. Made of high carbon tool steel by Edward C. Lyons. Measures approximately 7".
Scribe: By marking through a layer of protective grounds, the etching needle exposes the metal plate to an etchant resulting in areas that will etch.
Drypoint: Drypoint marks add detail or tone of a linear burr type. This mark is made by dragging or drawing the point or needle over the plate. This drypoint mark has a blurred effect when printed.
