Developed by Lenk, the stencil cutting pen is a tool that uses heat to “cut” designs in plastic stencil materials such as Mylar® or acetate, and some resist materials used for etching, sandblasting glass, and air brushing.
Each tool is unbelievably easy to use. As each pen provides an optimum amount of heat at the tip that cuts the stencil material, only a minimal effort is needed when using and guiding the tool to cut the pattern. Unlike using razor-bladed instruments, stencils can be cut easily and for extended periods of time without fingers getting tired, cut or callused. The more intricate the design, the easier the cutting.
