Tool Time!

SignKitI’m slowly accumulating a respectable looking kit box, with a small portion of my monthly salary going towards extending my range of brushes, paints and any appropriate extras.

The latest addition is a pounce wheel and pounce pad. The pounce wheel is about the size of a pen with a small spiked wheel at one end. This wheel is used to trace the artwork, rolling along the lines of the design to create a perforated outline.
