More thoughts on shaping tools
Well - last weeks post on the almost-ran graphite shaping tool brought out more comments than any single post so far, which was very gratifying. Wonder what I did right? ;-)
A number of you opined that said tool was a knock-off of the original CGBeads bead roller tools, and I would would certainly not argue against that.
I have, in fact, tried the CGbeadroller. I just haven't presented it here as I didn't get beads I like from this tool, as it is quite possibly my least favorite bead shape on the planet. Which is certainly not the fault of the tool. Trying again was on my to-do list, which is currently long enough to have it's own postal code.
Anyway - if you are looking for a shaping tool - I suggest you have a look at her web site and check out the variety of cool tools, useful videos on how to use them, and her entertaining blog that features her cats frequently. ;-) CGbeads.com
And they have comfy handles that won't heat up and burn you on the first bead. ;-)
