Beadrollers not only help you with those difficult curves, but also act as a measuring guide once your first bead is in the kiln. There's no more guessing if the next one will be the same size!!
Use it to make big holed round beads, hollow beads, or vessels. 1) The mandrel slot doubles as a cavity to help form the neck of the vessel. 2) Tip up your mandrel to form the body and use as you would to form a marble. 3) The donut cavities are strategically place towards the outside of the marver to help form the rim. Vuala - no more wonkie vessels.
graphite paddle measures 2-1/8" x 3" x 3/4" three round cavities measure: 23mm round 5x17mm spout donut 22mm round 5x16mm spout donut 21mm round 10mm slot designed 5/16" mandrel, this give room to form the neck of the vessel using the slot to shape.
There's also a handy little area for marvering on the front. The reversed side is a flat marvering surface.
