Nice idea.  I’ve used a mechanical pencil in the past to make rivets; never considered doing what you did to make smaller ones. Happy

Before I also used a pen, it wasn't until I noticed how darn small the rivets are on the old marauder miniatures, literally needle tip small!

Thanks for the slaves BTW Takes Hat off

Good technique! Thanks for sharing. Rivets are indeed detested by sculptors, but they add so much.
