Just like the work boards I showed you in a previous post, ceramic tiles are great to have around the studio. In this case, I use 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" tiles (available at home improvement stores) tape wood strips on opposite sides, and use them, along with a 5" piece of acrylic rod and a sandwich baggie with three sides of the seams removed, to create an even thickness when rolling out clay. The baggie can be used over and over again just by rinsing it off in between usage. I find this method much easier to use than a pasta machine, and definitely easier to clean up! The thicknesses I use most often are 1/8" and 1/16", so I've made tile rollers for each of those. These are great for when you just need a little bit of clay for a stamp or scrapbook embellishment.
I'd love for you to join me for more projects & art adventures on my personal blog
