Default Re: What is an ideal way to make fine sketches on metal?

Ditto the scribe. I polish the metal to a well worn 600 grit surface to get rid of marks than VERY lightly scribe the design into the metal. Corrections are easy to make by burnishing out the "offending" line and redrawing.

With well polished metal and good lighting a very fine line is easily seen. I use an optivisor instead of 'scope but that should not make a difference.
