BR62. Colour Shaper Tool Set of 3 BR62. Colour Shaper Tool Set of 3
With their tips of an advanced rubber composite, these tools can be used like a brush (with fluid media). Our favorite use is to write with masking fluid and, when dry, create a colorful wash over the writing. When you remove the masking fluid, you have white (paper-colored) lettering on your colored background. Unlike true brushes, these durable tips are not damaged by the masking fluid. We have selected two tapered sizes, which are similar to a pointed brush, and a small cup size, which is good for monoline lettering. Made in the United Kingdom.
Set comes with all three sizes:
(Colour Shapers are available in Soft or Firm; all avalaible through John Neal Bookseller are Soft.)
