I've always had an appreciation for engraving art. The satisfying scratch noises, the handsome finished product, and... ooooh, shiny! Simply devised, these sets contain just three pieces: a preprinted engraving board, an engraving tool, and a practice board. First use the practice board to get comfortable making broad and detailed lines. Then set to work scratching the engraving board to reveal a dazzling image! Pictures measure 8" x 10" and come in several metallic colors: gold, silver, copper, and holographic (rainbow). Given age range of 8+ maybe be a little optimistic, unless your 8-year-old has extremely fine motor control and a lot of patience. 10+ seems a more accurate age estimate.LACERATION AND PUNCTURE HAZARD - SHARP OBJECTS.
