brush´s tip

 

I use this old brush´s tip a lot.

 

Especially for modelling the

nose´s nares.

tooth pick

 

Normal tooth picks work very well for every kind of modelling:

 

... roughening surfaces

... bowing arms or legs

... molds / indentations

... stabilizing body parts

 

 

 

 

 

shapers

 

These are called color shapers or clay shapers.

They come in several types of hardness and sizes.

 

I like them very much.

They are soft and especially flawless !!!

You won´t find any disturbing edges.

 


styrofoam

I use several shapes of styrofoam to create different hollow shapes in clay.

 

While heated up to 130°C the ball will shrink, but maintain its shape long enough to stabilize the clay.

 

Stink: Before opening the oven I do open the kitchen´s window.

Use a good type of styrofoam that you´ll get at the crafts store.

 

When you use it, bake your piece of clay work within three or four days.

The clay reacts with the styrofoam and leaves a sticky film behind - even after baking !

rolling pin

 

This tool works very well on an even surface underneath.

 

Be careful: The ends tend to splitter when it drops on the ground.

( But it´s still one piece ! )
