We were first introduced to these fabulous rolling folders by Wanaree Tanner. It really is a genius way of handling your clay and stop it from distorting.
Place your clay inside the folder when you roll it out (the folder is large enough to fit spacers, cards, the small rolling frame set is perfectly sized for this), then use the folder to lift and transfer your clay to your texture tile, and for shaping around ring mandrels or similar. Watch Wanaree’s video to learn how to use this product. Make sure to use a little non-stick solution or olive oil on each side of the folder before rolling out clay.
The rolling folder securely holds the clay, which stops it from stretching or distorting. It also means you handle it less with your hands, which is absolutely ideal if you’re one of us with dry warm hands (which causes the clay to dry out fast)! Each folder is made out of a sturdy material so will last you a very long time!
PLEASE NOTE - the folders arrive sealed on three sides. Slide scissors or a cutting blade/knife down the two long sides to cut them open and turn into a folder shape.
Each folder is approximately 102 x 150mm (6" x 4").
