Colour Shapers are used to apply, move, carve and manipulate art materials such as paints and modelling putties

Clay & Colour Shapers

Clay & Colour Shapers are silicone tipped tools which are used to apply, shape, manipulate and carve materials including paints, oils, putty and polymer clay.

They help to create texture and form in a way that is not possible with traditional paint brushes or craft knives. Shapers move and cut through modelling putties, watercolours, acrylics, pastels, charcoals, mono print and many more materials.

There are two grades of Shapers with different tip stiffnesses. Clay Shapers are extra firm and used for harder materials like modelling putties. Firm Colour Shapers carve putty, paint heavy mediums like oil and acrylic and spread adhesives.

We have different sized tips available. Every Shaper is priced at £2.50 as we clearing stock, so grab yourself a bargain while you can – once they are gone, they are gone.
