I appreciate these tutorials very much. I would also like to know what tools you use, please.

Thank you! For the wickerwork, Citadel sculpting tool only.

In general, the simple Citadel sculpting tool can do almost everything, especially if you carefully sharpen it to handle finer details. After that, ordinary hobby knives are occassionally used for long, straight lines, cuts in the modelling putty, sharp straight details and the like. Needles with a ball head are also useful for very tiny details or to add roughened texture or give an impression of a line of seams in cloth.

The only more specialized tool I currently use are the equivalent of sculpting styluses: http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-in-1-Wooden-P ... SwPcVVyc7w

(Got my versions from dentist visits; always ask the dentist if they have some used tools which they're going to throw away; usually they have some, and they're willing to give them to you instead.)

The ends of ball point pens can be used for pretty much the same tasks as sculpting styluses, though much clumsier (works for beaten metal surfaces, eg.).

Many people use clay shapers, say they're good for sculpting billowing cloaks and suchlike, and I've recently ordered some to start doing so soon enough: https://www.ebay.com/p/5-Silicone-Rubbe ... 1882892470
