Strumenti per bulino dell'Armadillo Atelier


The burin is a direct engraving technique which takes its name from the instrument. The instrument consists of a small steel bar with an oblique form, generally quadrangular, inserted in a mushroom-shaped wooden handle.


The variety of lines that can be made with this technique depend not only on the different types of burins that can be used, but also on the amount of pressure with which the line is made and the angle at which the gesture is engraved. The end result of the burin once it is stamped is characterized by its clean and bold trace.
