Colour Shapers are a sensible alternative to painting knives when working impasto. Use them also to build glaze layers free of brushstrokes. Colour Shapers create unusual gestural effects in watercolour and hard-edged calligraphic strokes with ink. Try them for blending, smudging, and dabbing your pastel paintings and charcoal drawings too. Clay Shaper tips are like a brush with an extra-firm, long-lasting rubber composite tip. Used for precision modeling, carving patterns through slips, painting glazes, and applying resists.

Apply oil or acrylic straight from tube with a Colour Shaper, and then carve back into paint for unusual surface effects, including calligraphy. Use the rubber tip shapes to lift or blend paint, draw line, and draw contours.

Tips for use with Oil and Acrylic Paint:

  • When using Oils there's no need for white spirit, as you can clean the silicone tips with water…. no more smell!
  • When using Acrylics, either wipe the tips clean, or if the paint has dried on, simply peel it off.
  • A good way of working with Colour Shapers is the wet-on-wet method. Because the tips are non-absorbent, accidental mixing produces less 'mud'.
  • Use a larger Colour Shaper than you think you need because, unlike a brush, they do not spread out under pressure.
  • If you use an acrylic retarder, then you are able to create more textures, as you have more time to work.
