Wanaree Tanner’s Heirloom Quality Die Cut Tools lets you shape, texture, and cut tiny decorative designs in one fluid move - and they are perfect every time!
These patent pending, limited edition Die Cut Tools are produced in small artisanal batches and each die is hand finished by Wanaree herself. Fashioned in sturdy, luminous bronze, these are said to be the finest tools ever created for metal clay; and having used them ourselves here in our studio, we can vouch for that. They really are SO lovely to work with!
They're calibrated to both sculpt, and cut out, unique dimensional ornamental elements in one fluid move. Each element is designed so it can be used on it's own or easily combined with others. The design possibilities are endless!
Clip the die onto the magnetic brass handle (sold separately), and add a little non-stick solution such as Wanaree’s Dry-Release powder to ensure your clay doesn’t get stuck in the shape. Watch Wanaree’s helpful video which explains how to use these fabulous shape cutters.
Made from solid luminous bronze.
