i love tools! usually i go down town and look for odd shaped kitchen knives or those with good grips on them, and go back to our workshop and shape them some more, i use them for carving styro foam, thanks a bunch for posting this now i have an idea what kind of tools to use for sculpting clay :#1:

I've been looking for the tools on the right, the 5 pieces on the far right. Got any links where I can get those cheap?

I got them on eBay, you should look for "dental tools", better if stainless steel or they wont last so much.

Such a nice set. I just use whatever's handy. Toothpicks, thumb tacks, box cutters, spoons, forks... y'know how they did "meatball surgery" on M*A*S*H*? This is like "meatball kitbashing."

I strictly limit the number of the tools cause I HATE to mess up my working table, to me more than these at the same time on the same table is an unbearable mess.

I'm somewhat proud of the work I do, because I don't have the higher-end tools and supplies that you do, but I still produce stuff I'm quite happy with ^^ In other words, I can do more with less.

well, not so higher-end tools and supplies... :) some expensive as hell yes, but I must admit the most I enjoy is when I can shape the clay by hands with my own fingers using no tools at all

It really is an enjoyable process, isn't it? I've done a few sculpts for Glyos System toys that I'm going to get molded and cast soon, thanks to a friend. I'm really looking forward to making more soon, too.

Here's some of the sculpts I've done. [link]

congrats, sculpting commissions are a great way to learn, also try to do some figurative subject, it's another way to greatly improve

I need to get a new mechanical pencil. Then I'll start using my sketch pad again, and designing stuff to sculpt :)
