DIY Eye Stick Mini Sculpting Tool

I want to share with you my Eye Stick – the tool I made out of “That’s the one” Tool”
I saw this kind of tool on P. Faraut sculpting video, it is available for purchase at his website.
Unfortunately, it is too large, as Philippe Faraut mostly works in life-size sculpture.
So I made my own mini eye stick – for miniature scale (1:6 to 1:3).

Here is Philippe Faraut’s tool and the way he uses it.

You can see this tool (a little) in this promotional video:

This is the “That’s the one” tool, the way it comes from the package.

And this is my modified tool (slightly carved down with a X-Acto knife and smoothed and polished with a buffing sponge.

One end – the Eye Stick.

This is the other end, also carved and smoothed – I made it in the shape I use most, exactly what I wanted – small rounded spoon-like spatula.
But, of course, it can be made into any shape by choice.

This is a good way to make any kind of tool you crave – out of the pre-made wooden tools that are not quite what you need, or even orange sticks cuticle pushers.
