Lovely selection of spaces good variety of size only thing I would improve was that I would write the size on them or include a size chart
With this fabulous set of 6 pairs of measuring slats you'll always be able to roll out your metal clay to just the right thickness. No more messing about with stacks of playing cards, just choose the right coloured set of spacers. Put the spacers on each side of the clay, and use a roller to roll out the clay to an even thickness.
Price is for a complete set of 6, one pair of each colour.
The spacer slats range from 0.25mm to 3mm:
- White - 0.25mm (1 card thick)
- Black - 0.75mm (3 cards thick)
- White - 1mm (4 cards thick)
- Grey - 1.5mm (6 cards thick)
- Red - 2mm (8 cards thick)
- Orange - 3mm (12 cards thick)
Top tip - use a permanent marker to label the size of each spacer so you can easily and quickly find the sizes you're after and avoid confusion and uneven pieces!
I really like using these. Just make sure you get all pairs. My set had a pair missing!
For not much money a great addition to supplies. Easier than cards, clean and organized!
Great to use - just one suggestion. I use the 1mm ones most often and know which ones they are For those I don't use very often, it would be really helpful to have the mm stamped on them so i don't have to keep checking the sizes! **RESPONSE FROM METAL CLAY LTD** Thank you for your review and suggestion Julianne! We agree, it can get confusing to identify the sizes if you're not working with them often. We find it works quite well to mark them with a permanent black marker but a stamp is a great idea and something we'll consider. Thanks again for your feedback. - The Metal Clay team
I don't know about you, folks, but I just can't be bothered with sticking playing cards together, so these spacers are absolutely ideal for clay work and as necessary as a spade is for digging in the garden!
When teaching I used to use playing cards but students had trouble with them slipping and sliding. Now students will find rolling to a consistent depth a dream.
A perfect tool to achieve a lovely smooth level surface n your metal clay, saves time counting out cards too!
Pasta machine only rolls to 3mm on number 1. These spacers are more versatile, wider scope, easy clean unlike the pasta roller.
Work perfectly. Very happy!
does exactly what they are supposed to
I know that Playng Cards are very popular for measuring depth when rolling out Metal Clay etc., however, Spacers too, have a role in this direction and, in lieu of taking off cards as you roll, they enable the use of depth immediately!
Not used all sizes yet but what i have used have met expectations.
A good selection of spacers. I will now be looking for larger ones for sugar craft.
So much easier and more reliable than using playing crds!
I HAVE NEVER BEEN COMFORTABLE USING PLAYING CARDS, AS THEY ARE ALWAYS MOVING AT THE MOST ANNOYING MOMENT . THIS PRODUCT IS FANTASTIC I WOULD NEVER GO BACK TO USING CARDS. PRICE IS BRILLIANT AND DELIVERY TIME IS SUPER QUICK AN ALL ROUND GREAT PRODUCT
I never liked the idea of using playing cards as they move about too much. These are perfect and I wouldn't use anything else now!
Fabulous and brilliant price
Better than playing card sliding all over the place. Seem expensive for a few bits of plastic, but I looked into buying the sheets and cutting them down and it ended up more expensive. Worth every penny!
Might not be all sizes you need, but it does its job.
This spacer set gives you the option of rolling the clay to a variety of thicknesses which is very useful for embellishing rings, pendants etc.
So much easier than playing cards. Very happy with this purchase and love the fact you get a good choice of thickness.
If you're after precise, clean and easy control when rolling-out clays..then get yourself a set of these spacers. They're colour-coded, so it's a doddle to match each pair to pick-up and use. Alternatives (such as card) can become dirty or slightly worn and uneven, making them a little inaccurate and awkward to use after a while. If you enjoy working in fine detail at times, then these are really worth considering.
Forget the playing cards this set of spacers just makes life easier, colour coded for thickness so no more counting cards, all in all a good purchase, would have given 5 stars but maybe a tad pricey.
It is better to have these levellers, rather than guess with playing cards.
