tips on how to keep your polymer clay from sticking to your pasta machine.

Do you wish you had three hands, one to feed your polymer clay into the pasta machine to keep it from sticking to the rail while the other two are busy cranking the machine and catching the clay as it feeds out the bottom. Well maybe this little trick will help you a bit. I just wish I remembered where I learned it. It’s especially helpful on my Makins Clay machine because of the extra wide body and large skinner blends I like to make.

This will help when you let go of the clay with your feeding hand and let the polymer clay slide easily over the rail and into the pasta machine without sticking and stretching out your clay. Now you can use that hand to catch.

Wa-la it’s almost as good as having a third hand.
