RIK PIERCE COMPLETE TOOL SET!
This set includes (11) of the tools that Rik uses in creating his dollhouses out of Paperclay. Having the right tool for the right job makes all the difference in how your project turns out! (Entire Kit is Depicted Above in Picture 1)

1. ROLLING BOARD - Rik designed this special handmade Rolling Board when teaching dollhouse classes to assist his students in rolling out Paperclay to use in the construction of their dollhouses. He rolls out the Paperclay to make plaster for the walls of the dollhouses. In his Techniques Tutorial which is also available on our ETSY site, he gives detailed instructions along with pictures showing how to use this tool on Pages 4-5 titled, "Working with Creative Paperclay®. (Depicted Above in Pictures 1, 2 & 3)

This Rolling Board (or Rolling Tray) is designed to allow you to roll out the paperclay to a consistent 1/8" thickness that is the exact desired thickness that works well to create the look of plaster on your projects.

The Rolling Board comes with a 2-sided vinyl tile insert that may be removed and cleaned.

2. ROLLING PIPE - Included is a PVC Rolling Pipe that is approx. 15" long that Rik has cut to the length that works well when rolling out the clay on the Rolling Board. The Rolling Pipe is depicted on the cover of Rik's Techniques Tutorial and on Page 4 titled, "Rolling out Paperclay." (Depicted Above in Pictures 1 & 2)

3. STIPPLING BRUSH - A Stippling Brush is used to give a textured look to the Paperclay. Rik has cut off about 1/3 of the length of the bristles from the brush. Instructions on Texturing Plaster is described on Pg. 4 of his Techniques Tutorial under "Texturing plaster using stiff bristle brush with one-third bristles cut off." (Depicted Above in Picture 3)

4. TOOLS FOR MAKING BRICK INDENTATIONS - This is a 2-piece set Rik has cut out of plastic. The trapezoidal piece is approx. 5/8" on one end, which is the length of the USA standardized brick. The 1 1/4" on the other end makes the tool easy to work with. The narrow 2 1/2" long tapered piece measures 1/8" at one end, which is the correct thickness of each brick. The other end equates to the width of the brick. (Depicted Above in Picture 4)

5. CLAY TOOLS - A set of Clay Tools is included to assist you in smoothing or working with the Paperclay, as shown on Pg. 11 of the Techniques Tutorial beside the title "Materials." (Depicted Above in Picture 5)

The Clay Tools are also used in making Leaded Stain Glass Windows as described in detail on Pg. 32 in the Tutorial.

6. MORTAR CLEANER-OUTER TOOL - Rik made this tool to clean out the excess mortar between the brick. (Depicted Above in Picture 6)

7. SAWZELL KNIFE - Rik has designed a wooden handle to which he inserts and glues a Sawzall Blade. (Depicted Above in Picture 7) Note: The style of blade may vary from the one in the picture, depending upon blade availability when Rik makes the knife.

This handy tool is used to distress timbers for the beams in your dollhouse. Instructions are given on Pg. 3 of his Techniques Tutorial under "How to Distress Beams and Timbers." The upper portion of a finished structure (Depicted Above in Picture 10) shows a Close-Up view of the Distressed Timbers in the dollhouse.

8. LEAD GAUGE - Rik designed the Lead Gauge with a slightly indented edge on one side to assist in cutting the lead to the correct width when making stained glass windows for your dollhouse. (Depicted Above in Pictures 8 & 9)

He had it manufactured by a machinist so that he could make it available to other miniaturist. Instructions and in-depth details are given on Pgs. 29-34 in Rik's Techniques Tutorial.
