The Makin's® Professional™ Ultimate Clay Extruder™ Stainless Steel Edition is especially designed for use with metal clays.
The extruder is made from stainless steel which will is safe to use when working with metal clay. All clay inside the barrel extrudes, leaving the cylinder absolutely clean. Just remove the die and rubber ring, and use a clay shaper to remove the small bit left between the rubber spacer and die for zero waste of clay.
It's not just for metal clay artists - many polymer clay artists who prefer a smaller barrel, sturdier construction, and ease of cleaning, also love this stainless steel extruder.
You can use other Makin's discs with this. And for a lot of metal clay artists, the most exciting disc of all are the hollow clay core adaptors! These allow you to extrude hollow tubes and other shapes. Perfect for making stone bezels, hinges, tubes and lots of other exciting metal clay stuff! These adapters are available above as an optional add on to your extruder. They're available in 2 sets: 1, 2 & 3mm or 3.5, 4, 4.5mm
We do not recommend you store your metal clay in the extruder, once you've finished, remove the clay and store in a moisturising container or similar.
Your pack includes the actual extruder itself, a rubber seal and 10 different disc designs.
To use the clay extruder:
- Select the desired disc and place it in the Bottom Cap and acre it onto the barrel.
- Use fresh pliable metal clay for best results
- If using polymer clay, knead a small amount to soften the clay before extruding
- Always put soft clay in from the bottom of the barrel, do not pull and force the plunger out if there is still clay in the extruders as it may damage the plunger.
