Razor blades, pen knifes and X-actos

Sharp things! Be careful. Take a digit count. You need to have the same amount going out as you do coming in to this section.

Single-edged razor blades can pick out individual highlights and scrape rough lines.

Sharp pen knifes offer a safer alternative to razor blades. The handle offers a better grip for control but make sure you don’t accidentally fold the knife blade into your fingers while using. It hurts.

X-acto® blades can produce finer linear highlights. Take time to find out which blade angle works best for what effect you need.

All of these mothods are destructive in nature and somewhat risky due to the sharp tools used.
