Colwood Tip Usage

Below is a brief description of the different types of tips made by Colwood and their recommended usage.  However, many of these tips can be used in a variety of way.

Rounded Tips A

Used anywhere on a carving.  These tips are for concaved areas, such as under the neck and where the leg joins the body.  The J tip can be used to outline feathers.  It allows the carver to turn on a tight radius

Pointed Tips B

Used anywhere on a carving for doing straight lines

Style C

A writing tip used to sign carvings, etc.  Also used to burn nostrils and for burning plaques and designs on wood.

Style MC

Similar to a fine ballpoint pen.  Each tip is individually ground and polished.  This micro writing tip is used for extremely fine writing, raising a duck’s bill nostrils, indenting around a duck bill nail, carving wrinkles on birds and fish, modeling around eyes, modeling bird feet finishing the center shaft of feathers, and signing.

Rounded Tips D

Used anywhere on a carving.  These tips are for concaved areas, such as under the neck and where the leg joins the body.  The J tip can be used to outline feathers.  It allows the carver to turn on a tight radius

Style E

A general purpose tip with a cutting edge on each side.

Pointed Tips F

Used anywhere on a carving for doing straight lines

Pointed Tips G

Used anywhere on a carving for doing straight lines

Style H

The same size and shape as the G tip, but made with a heavier gauge material.  This tip is sharpened with a wider angle.  It will burn a fine line, but does not burn as deeply into the wood as other tips.

Rounded Tips J

Used anywhere on a carving.  These tips are for concaved areas, such as under the neck and where the leg joins the body.  The J tip can be used to outline feathers.  It allows the carver to turn on a tight radius

Pointed Tips K

Used anywhere on a carving for doing straight lines

Style LE

The flame tip.  A smaller, longer

(1-3/8”) version of the E tip ideally suited for smaller carvings.  It has a cutting edge on both sides.

Style LM

Same shape as the M tip but a little longer (1-3/8”).

Style M

A micro tip especially useful on miniatures and wherever fine detail burning is desired.

Style PS

Very useful for burning in tight and hard to reach areas like under wings.  One of Colwood’s longest tips (1-3/8”).

Style S

Designed for shading and raising feathers on carvings.

Style SQ

Used in raising of shafts and outlining feathers.  Also suited for flat burning and for raising sharp lines, shading, and calligraphy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Angled Tips – Used to outline and raise feathers and shading or detailing under wings.  Available in 45 and 90 degree angle.  (Specify tip style, angle, and whether right or left hand bend.)
