I had to bookmark that one. And what's cool is you can modify the paint brush but it can still be a brush.

Some of the best sculpting I've ever seen was done exclusively with a paint brush handle that was cut off at about a 20 (or so) degree angle, then sanded smooth. Heres the guys tutorial on sculpting hair, where he also shows off his tool (that didn't sound right): . I mean, damn, look how good that hair looks.

My main sculpting tools are my fingers, a woodburner (not recommended unless you want to melt your plastic toys), and sewing needles. You can use almost anything; experiment and see what you like.

The next time you visit your dentist, try asking him if he has any old/worn dental insruments he/she doesn't want. Many sculptors I know swear by them.

thanks for the responses. I just wanted to know what other people are using. I also used to use tooth picks well doing gundams and stick fas. I mean I had a sculpy " knife" but, I want to get some better sculpting tools.

I'm gonna look at my sets and maybe I'll put my spare to trade too since some folks may not have art stores nearby.

Your basic sets can be picked up cheap at a craft shop, some are as cheap as 3.00. I think I have 2 sets now. The bigger the set the more expensive. I actually use toothpicks and brush handles more than anything lately though.
