I use this old brush´s tip a lot.
Especially for modelling the
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.
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 !

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 ! )
