Loop tools for clay, wax & plasticine
Loop tools are available in many different sizes and shapes. The snares themselves are usually made from a metal strip, while the handles can be made from wood, metal or plastic, for example. The loops often have a ribbed side like a knife, which can be used to work the surfaces of clay or wax. Loop tools are very good for removing material or hollowing out larger clay sculptures, for example. Large snares are used for large sculptures and rough work, and smaller ones for detailed and precise work. Very small loop tools, which can be used to work with wax, for example, have a wire loop instead of a band.
