Hello ChrisB
beautiful work, I am very new to all this, last week I received my airgraver Classic, but lack of time I only managed an hour, the truth that is addictive to work with him, I practiced making lines and a scroll, and practicing really think I can do things with him pretty soon.

To make the shadows, what kind of sharpening do you use? "Steve that template?

I have only the universal, I'll be buying more soon

Greetings.

Hola ChrisB
precioso trabajo ,yo soy muy nuevo en todo esto , la semana pasada recibí mi airgraver Classic,pero por falta de tiempo solamente lo he manejado una hora, la verdad que es adictivo trabajar con él , he practicado haciendo líneas y alguna voluta, y la verdad que pienso que practicando con él puedo hacer cosas bonitas en poco tiempo.

Para hacer las sombras, ¿que tipo de afilado utilizáis? ¿con que plantilla de Steve?

Yo solamente tengo la universal, iré comprando más en poco tiempo

Saludos.

That is interesting Chris,
Could you direct us to which template that is? I cant find the shading template in the template list.

Nothing to bang your head against the wall over Chris
Do you ever shade with the universal template? I got kind of used to it and its easy to do everything with one graver. I have only used the Detailing for shading once or twice. They both work
