Why yes it does! On occasion I will use some wooden/metal clay tools (you can find at any craft store) or my Xacto knife to get just the right smooth surface or sharp edge. Other than that, mostly my hands! And I'm humbled you find my work professional
Nice guess! Could you be so kind as to link me to these tools somewhere online? Which of the set should I really buy? My biggest problem at the moment is making two separate pieces stick together and not fall off after baking :/
Haha! It's odd that you're flattered! You have 342 admirers on etsy and at least on DD!
I've never purchased tools online, however, I don't think you could go wrong with searching 'polymer clay tools' on Amazon! I would buy a set that includes a variety of shaped tips. You'll generally figure out which work best for what detail as you work with them.
I recommend using wire armature for thin regions or connected pieces of clay to prevent pieces from falling apart. A range of wire gauge 18-22 should work just fine for miniatures (which you may probably also find on amazon or other similar site).
I can't find the best kind of armature wire, but a coil like wire that does the job, yes. I live in india Amazon and pretty much all other sources are too costly for measly plastic tools! Thanks LSP(lol can I call you that? sounds cool!), keep in touch!
