I sure couldn't have done this without my DREAM machine so am glad to have found another use for it.
And speaking of tools that help to improve our work and production, our clay order arrived today from Shades of Clay. I didn't order too many fun things to play with this time except some of the new seamless shape cutters. I felt it would be a great improvement if I don't have to repair the marks that the seam in the metal cutters always leave behind when making our buttons and jewelry pieces. I also like the rounded corners that the square shape cutters have.
I did notice a bit of "roughness" on the inside edges of the cutters so I just smoothed them with a scrap piece of 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper and they are super smooth now.
