This pen-shaped scriber has a very sharp extra fine tip, perfect for writing on dry clay. Write or draw the design on your clay with a normal pencil first, then follow with the scriber. Leaves clean and crisp lines. Can also be used on the fired silver. This is designed and developed by Art Clay themselves for use on metal clay.
When you're scriber is not in use, we recommend retracting the tip to protect it. To retract: press and hold the button on top and tip the pen upside down. When you're ready to use it again, simply press the button on top to extend the scriber.
I found it difficult at the beginning to get the nib to come down as there were no instructions in English but once I realised it was like a propeller pen it was straight forward. The pen leaves a very good impression and fine lines where needed. I found it very good at drawing in soft clay as well as dried clay
