Sketching tool

Posted: 4 May 2014 in Tutorials

Hi!

This is a tool I made for sculpting large scale figures and as a fast sketching tool.
It’s very interesting when working with FIMO for the first steps on the anatomy, it allows you to blend the first volumes roughly.

PART I:

Take some chopsticks:
Chopsticks
You can see one of the sides is round and the other is more rectangular shaped.

Cut them to the size you prefer:

With a cutter, make the rectangular side more round:

Sharpen the rectangular side with a pencil sharpener:

Smooth the surface roughly with the cutter:

Start the shape in the other side:

Smooth both sides with sandpaper:


PART II:

Now, protect the tool with superglue:

Put superglue in a paper:

Put the sides of the tool in te superglue and cover all the wood with it:



PART III:

Sometimes it happens this if you put too much superglue in the surface:

In that case, just sand it again:

Now, put a little bit more of superglue on it. To make it more smooth, put superglue in the tool but clean it in a plastic surface. That way you’ll put a fine layer of superglue on the tool

See the brightness?

You can sand it a little bit to achieve a very smooth surface:



Later, you can put tape as handgrip:



And this is the result!

I hope you like it!

Regards!
