Flexible Mudtool Rib Ref. MUD/3
Shape 3 Polymer Ribs are 5 inches long and they give a good sweep across the clay. These are good ribs if you throw larger objects. Michael Sherrill uses the Green Medium or Blue Firm because they are stiffer and bite into the clay.
Red - VERT SOFT - Great for compressing slabs, burnishing rims, chamois, and handbuilding.
Yellow - SOFT FLEX - Perfect for smoothing, burnishing, porcelain, throwing, and handbuilding.
Green - MEDIUM FLEX - Great for compressing bottoms, burnishing, trim marks, throwing, and handbuilding.
Blue - FIRM FLEX - Still Flexible but Stiffer. Great for high burnish and throwing large work.
127mm x 49mm (5"x 1.94")
Our Mudtool ribs are made from a flexible material that is considered the "stainless steel" of plastics. Unlike rubber, this material will not develop burrs or cracks. In fact, these ribs will burnish themselves as you use them, so, the more you use them the nicer they become.
Available in six shapes, these ribs cover a lot of what hand builders and throwers need from a rib. Each rib shape is available in four degrees of hardness; from very soft to very firm. You choose the shape and hardness that suits your clay and your working style.
