STEP 3

Step 3

Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable platform. Etch over your pencil design using a Dremel rotary tool with an engraving accessory like the 191 bit. Experiment taking several passes over the design to adjust the width of your line. If you are decorating a few pots, we recommend using a fluted Tungsten Carbide Cutter like our 9904 or 9910 bit.
