Step 3
Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable platform. Etch over your pencil design using a DremelĀ® rotary tool with an engraving accessory like the 191 bit. Experiment taking several passes over the design to adjust the width of your line. If you are decorating a few pots, we recommend using a fluted Tungsten Carbide Cutter like our 9901 or 9910 bit.
