Sculptors’ Tools, Materials and Studio Equipment

Alec Tiranti have been the leading manufacturer and suppliers of tools, materials and equipment to the sculpting world for over 130 years, while at the same time staying at the forefront of design, innovation and customer care.

Materials: The leading supplier of high quality sculpting materials, Tiranti have always strived to supply the best Clay, Plaster, Wax, Resins and other sculpting materials to all of our customers. From mouldmaking and casting to modelling, carving as well as specialist applications such as patination and restoration.

We are always introducing new products and services, plus trying to advance innovation with new ideas and products, improving existing products and helping customers choose the right solution for their individual application.

Hand Tools: Wood, Stone, Plaster, Wax and Resin all require specialist tools to finish them to the highest possible standard.  Good quality tools are not “something you need” they are instead “something you want!” – Once you have used a high quality premium grade tool – you will never use anything else! All of the tools sold at Tiranti are chosen on the basis that the tools “fit the hand”, that way Tiranti tools reward skill by producing better results with less effort.

Studio Equipment: Tiranti have prided themselves for many years on the high quality studio equipment we supply, it doesn’t matter if the equipment is designed and made here at Thatcham, or if we buy it in from an outside supplier, that product has to be of a certain quality and provide good-simple function from its design.

Tiranti Student and Sketch stands are a fine example, a design dating back to the company’s earliest years and although it has changed a little, each one of these changes was done to make the product better.

We now have a series of technical leaflets available on a range of products such as Glassfibre, Resins, Silicones, Jesmonite, Plaster, Parting Agents, Centricast, Vinamold, Tools and Toolcare. These leaflets are to guide and advise customers into making decisions and are available as PDF downloads.

If you would like to discover more about our range of products, please explore the website, or get in touch with us by either completing a contact form or emailing us on – Or simply ring us and have a chat with a member of our sales or technical staff, we would be pleased to answer any questions you may have for us.
