If you are a dancer, you know that having the right tools is essential to producing good dabs. Having a few dab tools on hand can make dabbing much easier and less stressful on your part. You will need a set of tools such as a dabbing tool, a hook, and a tape measure so you can properly measure the length of your line or dab. These tools will also make the process of rolling out a bead or applying a pattern more smooth and precise. Below is a list of just some of the dab tools you may find in your local craft store.
A dabbing tool is an inexpensive little tool that is usually made of metal and plastic and used for shaping and applying makeup on the dab paper. This makes it possible to get precise measurements every time and makes the process of rolling out a bead or applying a color more streamlined and precise. There are many different types of these dab tools you can get, depending on what type of dabbing you are doing. You may think of a tool as being a combination of a tape measure and a molding tool.
Another dab tool you may be familiar with is the hook. This tool allows you to poke small holes in the dab paper to allow you to apply or remove small pieces of makeup very easily. If you need to use the hook for measuring, however, you will want to go one step further and get a measuring tape, which is essentially an extension for your regular tape measure. The measuring tape is especially useful when you are measuring for beads or other smaller items. The only problem with measuring with the hook is that it’s easy to get it wrong, so make sure you’re actually using the right measuring tool for the task at hand.
