Making your own handheld clay tools at home is very easy and inexpensive.
This Instructable is using random materials I found in my classroom and modeling clay for demonstration.
Step 1: BoM
Misc. materials around the house (sticks, bottle caps, hard ware, buttons, etc.)
Step 2: Handheld Tools
Gluing buttons, hardware and other small objects to the ends of popsicle sticks, twigs, or pencils, makes for a great handheld tool that you can use over and over.
Step 3: Bottle Caps
Create a design using hot glue on the top of a bottle cap and you've got an instant stamp! You can glue a stick to the other side to aide your stamping!
Step 4: Hot Glue
Hot glueing designs on pencils, cardboard rolls, etc. make for fast and effective texturing tools.
Step 5: Loop Tools
Make your own looping tools by hot gluing the round ends of paper clips to a pencil or stick.
