Nothing has been shared on my Facebook timeline more than this skull and crossbones rolling pin. I recently had a little bit of money and decided to invest in one and bought it from HousemateArtist on Etsy. BTW, they make all kinds of engraved rolling pins!
It was PERFECT!!! Look at that skull and crossbones goodness. The hardest part was deciding if I was going to use it in the kitchen or the clay studio. It was NOT an easy choice.
I decided to take it to the clay studio. I thought of all the dishes, pendants, earrings… I could make with it and the clay studio won.
I learned that it is very important to roll out your dough/clay with a regular wooden rolling pin first. You only want to use this once for a final imprinting. Make sure to flour/cornstarch both your surface and the rolling pin first and then carefully with even pressure roll away.
Here is my little serving dish and it looks perfect! I recently glazed it and am waiting for it to come out of the kiln.
The Good News
My new skull and crossbones rolling pin by HousemateArtist truly is a dream come true. I love that it adds embossed skull and crossbones to my surface—totally works like a charm. And not to fret! When I let HousemateArtist know that I was having a clay vs dough dilemma they sent me another one so now I have TWO! Talk about generous. I could not believe it.
HousemateArtist, you rock! I am already mentally preparing my “killer” strawberry rhubarb pie with it. More to come soon!
