The tool you didn't know you were missing!
The Hax Tool is an exceptionally good tool for the hand builder. At almost 6″ long it can cover a lot of territory while still getting into tight spots with it’s points. The micro-fine teeth allow you to do detailed manicuring and finishing. It removes leather hard clay with ease and scores and blends wet surfaces as well. An added benefit is that the Hax Tool is bendable and you can customize the shape to suit your sculpting needs.
Michael Sherrill (founder of Mudtools) uses this combination to achieve a fine finish on porcelain: Hax Tool to remove and shape the clay, wipe down with the White Finishing Mudsponge, and then burnish with a Red Very Soft or Yellow Soft Polymer Rib.
