The many available shaped tips enable patterns and small work inside larger images, in places where the iron is too large.
Stylus Pro Tips
The large range of threaded tips below are designed to enable finer graphical work within the encaustic art genre. The drawing tip and brushes are similar to regular art tools and enable line work, drawing and shading. The larger shaped tips are interesting for working inside larger images and for creating patterns and stylised imagery. These tip shapes can be built into complex forms or used in a simple and obvious way to create their own shape.
