I have to many things going on, one of them is the clay, I love the contradiction between the clay and the wood, one need to be cut, one so soft that it needs only a touch.
This post is from the Modeling tools blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/40479
1. My clay tools.
2. Cut to shape from scraps.
3. Sand and scrape.
4. Brand, oil and wax.
5. In the blog there are samples of easy tools to make from household items.
6. Little Japanese inspired toubaco boxes I made.
On Wednesdays I do nude model clay croquis.
When doing this I used to use my hands a lot for modeling, now I use almost only the palette knife and wire tools for shaping and then different modeling tools for details and difficult spots to reach.
I have a bunch, but needed out of love to make some my self.
