S859. Rotary Lead Pointer / Sharpener
Rotary Lead Pointer / Sharpener.

In his year-long classes, Reggie Ezell has his students use a lead holder with a 2mm lead which can be sharpened to a fine point. He gave this sharpener high marks after it was tested by his class at Calligraphy Northwest. Reggie prefers a drum sharpener over a mini-sharpener for sharpening these thick leads.

2oz. Nalgene dropper bottle
Bulk 1-liter bottle

Reggie Ezell, Harvest Crittenden, and Sheila Waters use this synthetic size for raised, mirror-finish gilding with gold leaf. They and many others have found it easier to use than traditional gesso made from slaked plaster. Yellow color allows you to see what you have applied.

Caution: Freezing adversely affects Instacoll. Those in the North or west of the Rockies should order during the warmer months.
