I wanted to try these clay thickness rolling frames for a while but thought they were something that could wait as they are not a cheap thing to buy and the cheapie spacer set works fine but I do frequently find the spacers irritating to use so I decided to bite the bullet and buy them. I am so pleased I did, they make rolling out textures a doddle, particularly if one is working on a big texture sheet of some kind but even the smaller ones are easier with these spacer sets for me, as my title says worth the investment!
The clever Clay Thickness Rolling Frames make it even easier to roll out your metal clay and polymer clay!
No dirty playing cards to bump into your work. Each Rolling Frame is numbered to correspond to the number of cards in thickness each represents. Clay Rolling Frames offer a working area big enough for the most adventurous project.
Use the frames like you would a pair of spacers - place on your work surface, and put your ball of clay in the hole in the middle. Because the frame surrounds the clay, it allows you to roll at any angle whilst keeping the same thickness!
You get six different thickness frames in the set:
- 0.3mm / 2 Cards
- 0.6mm / 3 Cards
- 1mm / 4 Cards
- 1.2mm / 5 Cards
- 1.7mm / 6 Cards
- 2mm / 8 Cards
Tip for Enamelists!
The #8 frame works really well for supporting stencils when sifting enamel onto copper or silver for firing patterns onto your pieces. They help keep the stencils still when removing them from your metal without dumping unwanted enamels onto your piece.
Exterior Dimensions: 17.5cm x 10.5
Interior Dimensions: 6.9cm x 13cm
Exceeded expectations. I have looked at these for a long time, should have got them sooner.
Very useful, much better than playing cards.
Does the job well, although I think they're overpriced.
Seeing these being used on Youtube, I thought they would be good, I was right. Nice size for the pieces I have made, helps me get the correct thickness when rolling the clay,easy to use.
