Tool For Shaping And Smoothing

Color shapers (AKA clay shapers and paint shapers) are a silicone tipped artist tool. Polymer clay sculptors use them to shape and smooth small areas of clay. We love the soft tips for sculpting facial features, especially for miniature figures. Sculpt the shape you require and add fine details with size 0's and 2's.  If you haven’t tried this tool, you may want to see what you’re missing.

The silicone tips are color coded; black is extra firm, gray is firm and white is soft. The tips are shaped: taper point, cup round, and 3 types of chisel; angle, cup and flat. And they are sized 0, 2, 6, 10, and 16.
