    Skinner blend help

    Trying unsuccessfully to make a skinner blend without a pasta machine. Does anyone know of a good tutorial for one?

    This is how I hand roll blends - I tape bamboo barbeque skewers to the work desk at the right distance apart. It works just as well as with the pasta machine (ie takes flipping ages until it is fully blended!) . Just the pasta machine tires your hands out a lot less!

    I prepared a diagram for you. I hope it can be useful. My english is not good, so I can't explain with words, I hope pictures will be enough.

    there are some video tutorials on you tube.
    Without a pasta machine, it's simply a longer slower process carried oput in the same way, but rolling with a rolling pin rather than the machine.
    If the clay begins to get soft, put it into the fridge for a bit to harden off.
