How to Roll Even Polymer Clay Sheets WITHOUT a Pasta Machine!

I remember the frustration of not having a pasta machine while trying to follow polymer clay tutorials calling for evenly rolled sheets.

Some techniques simply weren’t possible without a pasta machine.

Four playing cards with a ball of polymer clay and the title, "No Pasta Machine? No Problem!"

I wish I had known this trick back then!

If you find you enjoy working with polymer clay I heartily recommend eventually getting a pasta machine. I love my modified Atlas with its fancy paint job! (Similar to the one above.)

But I know it’s not always possible to invest as much as we’d like into tools. So I hope you find this card trick useful in the meantime.

You also might find it helpful to see the relative thickness measurements on my two machines.

Tools & Materials:

If you already have a pasta machine, check out Measuring Thickness on Pasta Machines to figure out the thickness of each of your settings.
