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!
Invaluable for determining the right thickness for my silver clay.
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
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.
