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 taper point tip. Also available in an Angle Chisel Tip shape.
Size: Tip is approx 8mm 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
Gets into tiny places to smooth and shape. Excellent when working on the inside of bails.
Used when shaping silver clay, will purchase other sizes when funds permit
I love this little tool, use it all the time when working with metal clay, invaluable to me. I must buy the larger size and others when funds are available! Perfect, the clay rarely sticks to it unless its too wet, as its also great when you dust down old clay to reconstitute. Best £2.99 I've spent probably ever on a tool :) Works perfectly. Only thing I would say is the tip is very small so maybe go for the larger version first.
