Was wandering round Hobbycraft the other day and found this.
Its an eraser mask , something i used to use a long time ago in engineering drawing (before CAD, showing my age!)
Figured as it was only 1 i'd pick it up and give it a try as a scribing template.
It's pretty effective as it's flexible enough to bend around curved areas easily. It may not have the broader range of curves and circles that a verlinden template has for instance but as a cheap way to get into the technique you can't beat it!
Any decent hobby store or art supply shop would be bound to stock them.

Paul, I agree! Very useful, can't believe they are still available
Mine has a bit different design

Nice! I would have been very surprised if no-one had thought of this before me Lol
I'm planning on putting it to good use in the near future.

I got the same tool a couple of months ago and I have to agree that it is brilliant.
