Hey guys yesterday someone asked about using a stylus. So I did a few examples on some paper. I think the stylus or a crochet hook would work fine. Hope this helps.

Darning hook???  You must be kidding - does anyone still own one?

I'm barefoot most of the time, so I guess I'm out of touch.

Not just darning needles, I'm still wearing hand knitted socks every day. ;)

Nina, bless you and thank you for taking the time to do the illustration of the different tools for scoring the paper. I used the stylus which works well but if you are not into scrapbooking, people wouldn't really know about it. However, everyone has heard of crochet hooks and it just gives people a larger choice of materials.  Thank you once again for your thoughtfulness.  Patricia

Your very welcome. I thought it might help. I guess I should of put a picture of a stylus on here. But I figured you could google one.  :2funny: With crochet hooks they come in so many different sizes. Just pick one.

Dear NHC50

I took a picture of the stylus I us.


They come in soooooo many sizes.

The top one with it's small blunt tip is
excellent for performing Nolan's scribing
trick in the onion and garlic pencil class.

Hope this helps.

 :thankyou:  May Lynn.  I have one of these and love it but it is so nice for the others on the forum who may not have seen what they look like and what to buy.  So thanks once again for sharing and taking the time to photograph it for us all.  Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated.

Nina, don't feel bad for you told everyone about the stylus being used in scrapbooking and therefore alerted others on the forum to it so thank you for sharing too as it all helps.  Patricia

Are you scraping or scratching lines into graphite?  I saw a guy using an old credit card for making streaks in oil paint. But I guess the stuff in our sewing and craft boxes could give us a variety of sizes to work with.

Liz I made the lines before I added the graphite. But you can also do it after for a different look.
