Chapter 1a - How to use a Mahlstick
Learning to use a "Mahlstick"
Mahlsticks help to steady your hand while lettering, helping the hand move fluidly through your work. Learning to use a "mahlstick" is the most important technique to master. It allows you to work over wet paint and stand comfortably at a distance from your work, while maintaining good posture.
Hold the stick
near the bottom in your left hand. Rest your right hand (lettering hand)
about 15 inches down from ball end.

This technique is use when ending a letter stroke with a snap, pertaining to a script letter "S" or lower case script "y".
