Sculpting tip for those with Carpal Tunnel and Arthritis

For the days that I just can't hold anything between my thumb and finger to sculpt a head I go to this method.  While it only helps with sculpting heads, it's a huge help for me on problem days, since the head can sometimes be the most time consuming. I'm terrible at giving instructions,and  usually end up confusing instead of helping.  But, I thought this was fairly simple and if it helps one person, I'm happy.

thanks for this, the dogs got into a fight last weekend (food aggression) and lady bit me very badly on my right hand so I'm going to need something like this.

I hope this helps you Marisa. So sorry to hear about your injury. Yes, our beloved pets do that unintentionally sometimes. I didn't think of it possibly helping someone with an injury, but it makes sense. Good luck, let me know how it goes.
Much love,

How very thoughtful of you Judy, and ever so kind.. I am sure this will help others out there with RA, and as I see, anyone with an injury as well. So sorry aboutyour hand Marisa..
I think it is also a good idea for those of us who do not have RA.. Really Judy... Thanks!

I so enjoyed your visit... Bebe was so happy to see you there.. I hope you will make it to the show in Nowhere on the 18th.
Take care my friend
