Tools for papier mache

As well as paper, tools have been occupying my thoughts too. I have just purchased some wonderful dentists tools from sculpture suppliers Alec Tiranti. They are the business! You can use them to:

  • model in plasticine - cut, smooth and generally prod when a finger won't do.

  • apply papier mache to burnish out the paper under the glue when applying it in a mould, smooth out fibres at edges, to mach them well into the glue, and so on

  • prise things out of moulds when set
