What are Color Shapers? 

Color Shapers are a type of sculpting tool that is used in a variety of artistic media, including clay, epoxy putties, acrylic paint, oils, and pastels. They consist of a handle with a soft, flexible tip made of silicone or rubber. The tip can be shaped and molded to create different effects, making color shapers a versatile tool for modeling, blending, and texturing. 

Clay and paint shapers can be used to apply and blend color, create textures, and smooth out surfaces. They are particularly useful for creating fine details and for working in tight spaces or on small projects. Some color shapers have interchangeable tips, allowing the artist to switch between different shapes and sizes as needed.

This type of tool is an essential tool for model makers and wargamers that will allow you to create fine details and textures on your models and figures as well as for painting and blending colors.

How to clean silicone brushes?

To prolong their useful life keep them in good condition and ensure that they work properly in future projects it is essential to clean silicone brushes. How can we effectively clean them:

  • 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 paint and other residue.
  3. Soak: Immerse them in the soapy water solution. Let them soak for a few minutes. This will allow the paint and residue to soften.
  4. Gentle Cleaning: After soaking, use your fingers or a soft cleaning brush to gently scrub them. Be sure to work gently to avoid damaging the ends.
  5. Rinsing: Rinse under warm running water to remove soap and paint residue. 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 silicone brushes 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.
