In the Send Panel, choose the material type you are going to stipple. In this example, we will stipple on cardstock. As an action choose “Stipple” and as a tool choose “Sketch pen”.

how-to image


Insert a sketch pen or a pen with the pen holder into the tool holder. If using the Curio, place material on the embossing mat and hold it down with material fasteners. Otherwise, place material on a cutting mat. Load your material. Click “Start” in the Send tab. Watch the Silhouette stipple!


Unload the mat and remove your project.

NOTE: Metal stippling only applies to the Curio. Ink stippling can apply to either the Curio or the CAMEO 3.
