Its always a pleasure to share with my friends and fellow-hobbyists, and I've always been the kind to share little tips and tricks 'cause that's the only way we, as artists, can grow, right? Right! So . . . on with the sharing!
In order to get straight scribe line details, you need to hold the "rake" or chisel edge at around a 20-30 degree angle to the surface of your material. Then, with just the slightest pressure, dig in to the material and gently move the side edge in a smooth, forward motion. It's best to only make a very shallow cut on the first pass and go a little deeper on subsequent passes. This will help to give you not only a straight line but, with practice, uniform depth as well!
Just remember, try and keep the chisel edge as sharp as possible as often as you can; if it gets dull, it will lead to jagged and wavy scribes and may possibly "skip" off track.
Other than that, though, I just use standard sculpting minarets, my opti-visors, calipers, and a boat-load of patience!
Ive been using this stuff for years and highly recommend it! It's not very cheap, but it's neither really expensive; it is soooo worth the money!
Hope that helps a little bit!
