Modelling Tools

Here at Alec Tiranti, we have a wide variety of modelling tools that are perfect for sculptors. Although such tools are mostly used with clay, we have a range of categories, which includes an extensive collection of clay modelling tools, as well as those for wax. Other categories include those specifying the material of the tool, such as stainless steel, metal plaster, or wire. Read on to find out more about what we offer.

Clay Modelling Tools

In our clay modelling range, we offer hardwood tools for students, as well as those for professional usage. We also have plastic modelling tools, which are ideal for children and beginners, and those which combine materials. Additionally, we also stock clay shapers, which offers a new approach to working with clay and other materials, and finger tools, which are designed to shape fingers, toes, and hair texture, and are made of glass-infused plastic. Furthermore, our clay guns or extruders are ideal for creating extrusions for modelling and coil building. Lastly, we have a range of rubber kidney palettes used for pressing and smoothing clay in a mould.

Wax Modelling Tools

We have a selection of tools for use with wax, which are suitable for use with an alcohol burner, also stocked on our site. Our wax modelling tools are made from a fine stainless steel. We stock spare wick for alcohol burners, which provides you with a clean flame on methylated spirits and is vital when working with wax. The stainless-steel wax tools are available individually or as part of a set of nine tools, and measure around 15cm in length.

Dental Tools

Our range of dental modelling tools are supplied as a set of twelve, but can also be purchased individually. With the precision and quality of tools used in dentistry, the finest details can be achieved when used in sculpting. They measure at approximately 14.5cm long and feature our usual textured grip to enable you to get a firm hold of your modelling instruments.

Modelling Tool Materials

We also stock a range of other modelling tools, including wire tools, which feature wire in various shapes at both ends of the tool, with a plethora of different sizes available. We offer a wide range of products in our stainless-steel category, with some tools catering to the needs of wax, and others of clay. These versatile tools can be used for a variety of purposes, including polymer clays, plastiline, and even plaster. We also stock a range of larger metal plaster tools, such as spatulas and griffons. Other products include flexible steel scrapers and joint rules.
