  • beauty supply shops have potential miniature making tools - emery boards in different shapes, sizes and grits, nail tools for positioning, shaping clay and whatever you can think of, tweezers, and clippers for wood and wire. Look at the nail polish (paint), tiny decals and rhinestones. Makeup and powders can be used for tinting, shading and general colouring projects Check the brushes out too!.
