Finally, Affordable Nib Blocks!


Recommended Posts

Tip: Put some blue painters tape on the bottom of the nib block.

I lost the CLEAR nib block on my work table, many times and right under my nose, because I could not see the bock. The blue tape makes it much easier to see and find.

I found a tool in a hobby shop that was intended to be used to burnish decals on models. A handle, with several sizes of round tips. Not expensive, works fine.


Not that the whole process is easy. Some nibs take a lot of work.

Flexible nibs in particular are intentionally springy, and are hard to bend the right way.
