Some color shapers have interchangeable tips, allowing the artist to switch between different shapes and sizes as needed.

How to clean silicone paint brushes?

To prolong the useful life of your clay shaper tools keep them in good condition and ensure that they work properly in future projects it is essential to clean silicone paint brushes. How can we effectively clean your colorshaper:

  • Materials needed:
  • A bowl of warm water.
  • Mild soap or dishwashing liquid.
  • A soft cleaning brush (optional).
  • Tissues or cloth towels.


  1. Preparation of the soapy water: fill a container with warm water. Make sure the water is warm enough to dissolve any paint residue, but not so hot as to damage them.
  2. Mild soap: Add a few drops of mild soap or dishwashing liquid to the warm water. The soap will help loosen and remove all sort of residue.
  3. Soak: Immerse your colorshaper in the soapy water solution. Let them soak for a few minutes. This will allow the residue to soften.
  4. Gentle Cleaning: Use your fingers or a soft cleaning colorshaper to gently scrub them after soaking. Be sure to work gently to avoid damaging the ends.
  5. Rinsing: Rinse under warm running water to remove soap and residues. Continue rinsing until the water runs clear and they are completely clean.
  6. Drying: Dry them carefully. You can use tissues or cloth towels to absorb moisture. Make sure they are completely dry before storing them to prevent water from getting trapped in the tips or inside the ferrules.

With these steps, your color shapers tools should be clean and ready for their next use. It is important to clean them after each project to maintain their quality and prolong their life. If you continue to have problems removing paint residue, you can repeat the process or use alcohol or paint stripper.
