OK, I had a little money in my PayPal account and these tools have been calling to me for months.
"Buy us, Theresa. Buy us, and you will be so happy."
Normally I would say that things don't bring happiness. But the tools were RIGHT!
I AM so happy.
These are called Colour Shapers and they were originally meant to be a texturizing tool for paint. One could use them to sort of push the paint into different areas. Very cool.
I bought them, however, because they looked as though they would be easy to move across polymer clay.
I wanted something that could smooth as it goes. I also wanted something that could easily push, pull and move the clay.
I bought a whole set of #2 in firm.
I was worried that "firm" would be too stiff, but it is perfect. I think "soft" wouldn't be as useful.
If you can only buy one of the set, I would suggest the taper point, as it seems to be the most multi-purpose of the bunch.
Dick Blick had a really good price. Compare there before buying from another artist site.
This is one of the "THINGS" that I made.

You know it's bad when my husband comes in and asks me, "What IS that"?
and I reply, "Gee, I have no idea. It just sort of came out."
Husband shakes head and walks away.
Yep, that about sums it up.
Now the question is, what DO I do with him?
Until next time, happy new tool trying!
