This is is a great tool to work with but it is quite small, so great for smaller working
One of our 'must have' tools for working with metal clay. We love this silicone tipped clay shaper for it's versatility - perfect for smoothing out joints, texturing and manipulating the clay. When finished, any dry clay is easily removed from the silicone tip. Brilliant for applying Gold Paste and Accent Gold for Silver. Choose between small or large angle chisel tip. Also available in an taper tip shape.
Size: Tip is approx 7mm long and 4mm wide (at base).
Don't just take it from us, here's what some of our Metal Clay Makers have had to say about the clay shapers:
"I can't work without clay shapers - such a multi-tool!" - J. Goswell
"I have one near me on my work bench all the time" - F. Ingram
"Easy to use and hold - great shape for introducing detail in your work" - G. Cadogan
As there is no measurement in the description and nothing in the image to reference scale, this item when it arrived was very much smaller than I had expected! The tip is only 3mm wide, about 6mm long and has a fairly accute angle (about 30 degrees I would guess). It works really well though, but I'm taking off a star really or the description here; measurements would be good to include. It really is for fine detail and for that it works really well. **RESPONSE FROM METAL CLAY** Hi Karin, Thank you for your suggestion to add more detail to the description of this product. We completely agree so we'll adjust the description and the photo asap. Other than that, we're glad to hear you're happy with the clay shaper! It really does work well for fine detail. We also use them to even out edges, smooth joints and surfaces, and for poking stones in place.
This is perfect for manipulating wet syringe paste, as the paste doesn't stick to the tip. Brilliant little tool.
Good tool for sculpting metal clay and polymer clay projects. Firm tip but not solid so there's enough give to flex and smooth wet clay surface. Quite a fine point on this one too for detailed work.
