Paper and Tools

General Recommendations

Geomegic method does not require any special tools or paper. You can use any pen or paper you have available at home. However, having nice tools and high-quality paper makes the drawing and coloring experience that much more enjoyable. Nice and smooth paper that does not buckle when heavily colored and felt tip pens that just glide evenly and easily. It’s just another level!
