Our next monthly challenge for the pcagoe is called "Extruded". For those who don't know what that means, basically it's using a tool called an extruder to create something using polymer clay. The applications for the extruded clay defies all imagination and new ways are coming up all the time. A fellow member wanted photos to explain how I turned my hard-to-use, almost-giving-up extruder into a tool that is easy to use. Instead of just showing her photos, I thought I'd post a blog about it in case someone else might be interested. You need an extruder, a metal washer and a caulking gun. I didn't invent this, got it from a book and if anyone wants to know which book, just ask. I'll dig it up!
So, photo #1 shows the extruder with the end bit taken off and the metal washer found at any hardware store. Choose a washer big enough to fit in the end of your caulking gun.
