Quick scratchbuilding tip

RELATED TOPICS: SCRATCHBUILT
Tip: Here is a quick scratchbuilding tip that eliminates the frustration (for me, anyway) of drawing on a sheet of styrene. 

Whenever I try to draw a pencil line on styrene, the pencil slides and skips, and in general is hard to control.  

The solution? 

Rub the area that you will be drawing on with the pencil's eraser. It will scuff the plastic just enough to give the pencil lead something to bite into. 

It's a small thing, but it works great.
