Today I am using the Monster Pasta Machine. I found this old post from 2011 when we put it together. I am blending colors from Julie Picarello's book: Patterns in Polymer Clay. I just love her colors! I use Kato clay so I am also making blends of the basics: Cadmium Red for Kato is: equal parts Kato Orange and Kato Red.
Someone posted they were conditioning 20 pounds of clay, you needed this machine!
clay and beads,
When I sent my friend Leslie a picture of the new pasta machine motor all hooked up, she texted back asking: "Did you watch an episode of 'Pimp My Pasta Machine?'" Here is my "pimped out" pasta machine.
I only use this one for the heavy work. It will over-condition clay if I am not careful. It will spit out conditioned clay with speed that is very entertaining! I have the trigger set for one speed but it has an adjustable hose clamp to loosen or tighten (slow down or speed up) the drill. Worth the effort and $$.
Beads and clay,
