Place your sketch pen in your tool holder on your machine. If you are using a machine with a dual carriage, you can use more than one sketch pen at a time. If so, assign the correct lines to the correct color.

In Silhouette Studio®, go to the Send panel and select “Cardstock” for your material type. Since you are sketching and not cutting the material, it doesn’t really matter which material you choose.

Choose “Sketch” for your action and “Sketch Pen” for your tool.

Send your design. Remember, each line your sketch pen makes is a “cut,” so the sketching process may be a bit lengthy.

Remove your finished project. You are an artist without even trying!


Note: If you are using more than one color for your project and you don’t have a dual carriage, you can add pauses in the Action panel. When your cut job pauses, change out your sketch pen for the next color and resume.
