Taking the plunge...

Post by Jalynn » Sun, 20 Apr 2003 01:02:24



Well, maybe wading in a bit...
But I'm on the look out for a pasta machine so I can start working with poly
clay.  I am wanting to start making beads.  The only other two things i need
to get that i don't already have are the sandpaper and floor polish, but
that's easy enough to get.  This could get dangerous, you know.  It'll take
me a week or two to get everything together...have some sewing i HAVE to do
in the meantime.  My dd was the one who finally made me take the first step,
because she wanted a pretty necklace with beads that I made...oh boy...LOL.

I found my pasta machine for $30 at the local True Value Hardware store.  I
played with my clay for *hours* last night....you might try looking (if you
want to find one locally) at a kitchen gadget store or a hardware store that
also sells kitchen gadgets (like true value).  If you can't find one
locally, let me know and we might be able to work out a deal where I could
go get you one (It says "Weston" on the box...but the receipt said
Atlas...hummmm which is it???) and ship it to you.

Let me know

Several of the polyclay places have them for sale also....  I'm on the
lookout for an affordable one.  I hear that if you get an optional motor you
don't get so tired from turning the crank, but I personally think I'm gonna
wait.

I think this is wonderful! And as for DD... who is really a dear... let her
play too! bake up some of her creations, or let her have fun with the mud.
It will make her necklace even more special...
hugs,
Di

Have you tried ebay. I know we have several come up on UK ebay but of
course the weight alone is out of the question postage wise to go across
the pond.

The Clay Factory has pasta machines, and motors too. Often  these machines (not
the motors) can be found at garage sales and flea markets, especially during
spring and summer when people clean out. $30 is average for brand new from a
store, $5-15 dollars at garage sales (found two this way).

Yes, I looked on eBay, but the shipping is often more than the machine
itself, and i can get one locally for the total end price.  I'll start
looking at thrift shops...thanks!

These two remind me of Jeanne & Tink.
