Wow, I haven't seen that script in a while. Joe Vitolo gave a workshop in that script about 15 years ago, I think. Nicely done.

I don't remember having seen Joe Votolo's instructions, but if anyone wants to try it. I find the following helpful.

If the mini hairline breaks don't fall in exactly the right places the results look terrible.
I have found that if I draw light pencil lines across the lettering at the break points, it's then quite
easy to judge the points at which pressure should be released. I find it very difficult to judge accurately
without this aid. Once dry the lines are then removed.
