I believe that those are Gene's custom sculpting tools.

I think you're asking about my tools... I have four types of tools.

The larger ones are from a dental supply company and I'll warn you they are VERY expensive... - Smileline - http://www.smileline.ch/en

I also use double ended wax minarettes from Sculpt.com - http://www.sculpt.co...Minarettes.htm#

Next I have a couple micro kives from Micro Mark - http://www.micromark...e-set,7653.html
Replacement Blades can be had for the micro knives in large quantities for less at Havels - http://www.havels.co...cal-blades.html

And finally all of my other tools are homemade. Here's the basic process I use with the exception that I DO NOT heat treat the music wire like he suggests. I just bend them with pliers, hammer them out, and grind and polish them with a dremel tool. If you scroll down a little bit he has a downloadable PDF that's very good! - http://sculptingtools.blogspot.com/

FYI I cover all my tools (except the smilelines) with heat shrink tubing that I get at the hardware store so they're all matchy matchy. ^_^

Hope that Helps!

Gene

Skulls, my friend, are the answer. And if you don't clean them well, that's just a bit of extra protein, don't you know.

Eat soop? Soop is for bathing, not eating.

Guess you hoomans aren't as advanced as I thought, eating soop.

I watched this video last night. Something about it seemed totally wrong. I finally figured it out! Erica isn't wearing her trademark stocking cap. Obviously, Aliens have abducted her and have planted a Ghent proxy. That means that no matter how accurate the rest of the video is, the whole thing has to be a big coverup! I'm sure the Men In Black have to be involved somehow!

What planet are you from and what have you done with the real Erica!
