Craftools are an investment that will last for years to come! In floral carving, the pear shader is used to depress certain areas of a design to give more depth, add contour and to create a more realistic appearance. Using a pear shader, on properly cased (dampened) tooling leather, will create a burnished (darkened) effect adding a beautiful contrast to your design. Our book, "Tech Tips" #66056-00 by Al Stohlman, teaches correct pear shading techniques. Approx. stamp dimensions: 5/16x1/2.
