Today we are presenting one of the Honorable Mentions from our recent D.I.Y. Clay Tools Video Contest. This one comes from Cristine Boyd in Denver, Colorado. Cristine was having trouble finding a nice, sharp, affordable sgraffito tool that retained its sharpness so she took matters into her own hands. She discovered that spring steel – the stuff that is in metal tape measures – is the perfect material for sgraffito carving blades.
Watch the video to see how she does it! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
