Sure you can. Just roll it out as thin as you need it. The pasta machine is great for getting a consistent depth to the gum paste and it's easier than doing it by hand, especially when you have lots to do but it is not a necessity.

Yep, xstitcher is right....roll it out suuuuper thin to almost transparent then thin the sh$# out of the petals with your ball tool. Makes for very realistic looking petals.

Oh and it helps to have the smaller hand roller to roll it and not try to do it with your larger roller.
