Stippling is a way of creating a drawing through the use of dots instead of a continuous line. Curio performs this effect with the Stippling & Etching tool on thin metals or with a felt-tip pen or marker on paper. Curio uses the stippling tool and the embossing mat to create the stipple effect. The stipple tool has a narrow metal tip that allows the machine to create small indents in the media using a quick up and down motion.

In Silhouette Studio®, the Stipple feature allows you to convert any design from the Design Store or your own design into a stippled project. By playing with settings like Spacing or Scale factor,  you can change the look of the stipple effect. You can control the number of dots, the spacing of dots, and even the pattern.
