Skinny skinners
« on: January 10, 2015, 01:27:01 PM »
Decided to use up a load of scrap to make a thingy to reduce the width of my pasta machine.

I worked out the generall width I usually want a skinner blend to be when I just want any amount for a couple of items.  Then squished up a load of scrap and pressed it into the pasta machine. 

I saw the idea on (I think) Desiree's (Desired Creations) site ages ago but only just got round to it after fighting the pasta machine when things went too wide.

Not a thing of beauty but very useful.

Excellent  - it is so pretty too!

I just tend to hold a paintbrush handle to the edge of the clay, but this looks a lot easier

I did that, too.  I made it thinner (not as wide).  Then, if I wanted it to be wider, I had magnets that I stacked along the rollers  to change the width of the spacer.  I think Desiree has the magnet instructions on her site.  Easy to do and really works.  Hugs, Boni
