Welcome to dickblick
Colour Shapers are a revolutionary tool for painting, drawing, lifting, and blending. Invented by artists for artists, Colour Shapers combine tradition with exciting new technology. The durable tips are made of an advanced rubber composite.
Apply oil or acrylic paint straight from the tube with a Colour Shaper, and then use it to carve back into the paint for a variety of texture and surface effects. The tool easily lifts paint from the surface or draws lines, contours, and edges on the color.
With seamless nickel ferrules and lacquered hardwood handles, they offer the quality needed by dedicated artists. To clean, simply dip the tips in water or solvent and wipe with a cloth. Don't worry — dried color just peels away!
Available in Soft or Firm tips. The ivory-colored tip is soft and designed for responsiveness with fluid and soft colors. The gray tip is firm and offers better control over heavy bodied paints. Choose your size, shape, and firmness, or try a sampler set of 5.

Colour Shapers is a trademark.

Colour Shapers are a sensible alternative to painting knives when working impasto. Use them also to build brushstroke-free glaze layers.
Colour Shapers create unusual gestural effects in watercolor and hard-edged calligraphic strokes with ink. Try them for blending, smudging, and dabbing your pastel paintings and charcoal drawings too.

Such a wonderful tool
These are great for blending pastels and creating shading that otherwise would have been a difficult challenge.
Great for pastel blending
By Sr. Artist
I use these shapers for blending larger areas of pastels. They are easy to use, and don't crumble or flake off on the paper as did the pipe insulation a friend suggested. These save my fingers from being shredded when using sanded paper...a good buy.

Really like the tools. Great product
Ceramic artists need this tool!
By Happy potter
from Fort Bragg, CA
These soft shaper tools do a fantastic job smoothing attachments to leather hard clay and blending and defining texture elements. The catalog should display these tools in the ceramic section of the catalog. I have not used the hard rubber shapers, but can imagine their usefulness as well.

useful for dry pigments and mica pigments
from Hot Springs, AR
I use dry mica and pigments for some custom leather finishing on exotic leathers. One tutorial on using dry pigments on figurines suggested these. While pricey, they really do work wonderfully for this as well as for painting with alkyd and acrylics. The tutorial did say that the artist had tried other brands of similar tools and preferred these. I had ordered a cheap brand from also. Both are useful but the colour shapers are more flexible and softer. The off brand firmer ones are a bit better for a few uses but overall not as good. If I had only one choice it would be the colour shapers. Having something that alkyd paints can dry on and peel off without the next use being contaminated makes clean up easy. I had been using disposable cosmetic eye shadow sponge applicators before. I prefer not having to toss something or use solvents for clean up. The minis are great for fine details.

Don't know how I managed without them! I use pastels and they are perfect for 'shaping' and blending colors.
