Fellow gaffers,

For those interested in making tactile markings, I've developed a technique for making a rough textured patch on the back of a card.
The intention was to create markings that are easy to feel, in order to perform the punch deal.

I've filmed a video detailing how the work is put in, which is available from [url=https://www.lybrary.com/making-tactile-readers-using-boss-work-p-923911.html]lybrary.com[/url].

The tools required are not expensive and, once put in, the work will last for the lifetime of the card.

You can see a close up image of the work on my [url=https://th10111.wordpress.com/2020/08/10/making-tactile-readers-using-boss-work]website[/url].

Hopefully this will be of interest to some of you,

Will this help when using an actual Pin Pegger (Eoin O'Hare type) or a Blistr (Lybrary's product)?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Poof-Daddy,

Hope you're well :)

The intention for boss work was to be used in place of other work, such as with a pin or Blistr device.
However, if you want something to practice with that's easy to feel, then boss work could serve as a precursor to moving on to other work.

Also, the second part of the video goes through the mechanics of the punch deal, from a more general perspective.
There are a number of tips and some drills that I found useful when practising; these are all equally applicable to other forms of tactile marking.

Hope this helps,
