I've been wanting some different tools to use with my clay sculpting. Rather than buy them, I decided to make them. (1.) Picking three fairly straight 6 inch lengths of 1/2 inch black oak from the brush pile, (2.) I whittled off the bark and knots with my trusty Mora, (3.) and then created the basic shape for the three tools I was wanting. (4.) After I sanded the tools down and glued three short lengths of 22 gauge stainless steel wire, I now have a square headed sculpting tool, a scale sculpting tool (for making fish/dragon scales and the like), and a scoring tool that makes three equidistant lines very easily. Examples of the tools at work can be seen in the piece of clay to the left.
