This should have gone last week with the scrap clay goodies but Ginger’s tutorial is still a great idea on how to use little bits of clay and make your own custom tools. Don’t forget, you can make the body of the tools as decorated as you like. You can mold the handle to fit your fingers.
Other great ends for similar tools are metal bristles from scrub brushes for a texture, brass tubes or half tubes for fingernail, smile or circle tools and small bits of files and metal for a roughing up texture that gets into small spots.
