Colourshaper Taper Point Firm #16 (206632)
Colour Shapers are highly versatile tools which can be used for sculpting, painting, drawing, printmaking and application of masking fluid. Colour Shapers are constructed with a handle-like brush. They have a silicone tip and are available in 5 shapes, 3 levels of firmness and 5 sizes. All firmnesses can be used with paints, glazes, wax, plaster, pastels, and adhesives, and even to blend or smudge pastels and charcoal. Colour Shapers allow you to sculpt clay, apply pastel, carve images in wet paint, and easily move and remove paint. They can be used alongside regular brushes to create exciting textures, marks and a variety of decorative effects. The tips do not absorb paint like a brush, and therefore can be simply wiped clean, or dried paint can just be peeled off.
Style: Taper Point Hardness: Firm Size: 16
