This Artist Carves Tiny Sculptures Into The Tips Of Pencils

Nikki Barr

Why draw art with pencils when you could be carving art into your pencils?

Jeweller and artist Tom Lynall has spent the last few months creating these tiny masterpieces as a hobby and uploading them to Instagram.

Taking the tips of coloured pencils, Tom carves little sculptures into them using a scalpel and some pins - he even installed teeny lights into one of his creations.

He explained: "In November last year I was sitting in my workshop and picked a pencil and thought I’d carve a little heart into the tip, little did I know this would start me off on one of the most engrossing hobbies I have ever had.

"I love art but I have never been able to draw so this is a good way for me to create things with the limitations of my skill. The main tool I use is the scalpel blade shown in the pictures as well as a few pins which I have altered the end of to give me different blades.

"This is great fun to do so if you would like to give it a go the best advice I can give is to not get annoyed when they break, they are extremely fragile but once you're done they are fantastically satisfying."
