Metal Clay Tools

Each Metal Clay Tool serves its own unique purpose for assisting in the process of creating jewelry. Our clay sculpting tools are needed for adding small detail, texture and design as well as creating your desired shape and form. Ring tools such as Mandrels help you create a round and smooth finished ring in the desired size you choose. Anti-stick products help keep Clay from sticking to your hands, textures and tools. Keum Boo is a simple technique where thin sheets of gold are fused to silver, which is an inexpensive way to add the luster of 24K gold to silver creations. Molds & forms are great for those looking for a specific look or design and want to achieve it in a more simple process.

Ball Burnishers

A Ball Burnisher or “divit” tool is a very important tool to use while working with metal clay. This simple tool will be one of your most handy and well loved tools in your jewelers tool box. Ball Burnishers are essential for adding design, making settings for small stones, marking for drilling, burnishing and adding freeform textures.

When working with wet clay, a good quality paintbrush is a must for smooth application of water or paste. The right brush makes all the difference when working with wet metal clay.

Tissue Blades

Flexible stainless steel blades will last and last if you treat them right. Wipe with Cool Slip to keep metal clay from sticking and after use to keep sharp.


Tweezers are an essential tool when working with wet metal clay. Whether you are setting a stone, holding parts for patina dip or any other jewelry making step, well crafted tweezers are needed.

Tuff cards can be put in the oven, on a hotplate or in the dehydrator and will support a lot of weight. Tuff Cards were designed by Cool Tools to simplify the process of transferring wet metal clay.

The tough Teflon surface can be used for rolling and assembly.
