I'm finally using my pasta machine to condition my polymer clay.
I gotta tell ya, when I first got this pasta machine, I tried it and decided that it was more work to use it, than it was to just condition the clay with my hands. And way more work to clean all the black stuff off of it. [What is that black stuff anyway? The metal oxidizing? Ick.] So I put it back in the box and put it up in my office and felt mild regret for wasting $15 on another piece of junk to clutter up my house.
But then this week I decided to go into a frenzy of pendant-making. Today is the second day and my hands hurt. So I thought I'd try the pasta machine again. Well, it isn't really faster...but my hands don't hurt while I'm using it. And apparently it just comes covered in that black stuff and you only have to work that hard to clean it once.
So my advice is...get one. They have them at Michael's and you can use your 40% off coupon.
If this is the first post you've ever read on my blog, I'm sorry. I'm not always quite this boring. I swear.
