I really like my Makins clay gun. I purchased it at Hobby Lobby (40% coupon). I mainly use the round disc for making ropes.

The Makins one is far easier to use than most. Instead of a squeeze trigger than can really hurt your hands, it has a twist key to push the fondant/gumpaste through the tube.

You material may still need a bit of shortening to push through cleanly.

Makins' Ultimate Professional Clay Extruder is the one I believe people are referring to. Makin's makes more than one model. I love mine, too. I mostly use the different sized round disks.

I never knew they were so inexpensive! I saw the monterous thing that Duff has on AoC and thought that they must be expensive. Now I am going to have to go and buy one! Thanks!
