Does anyone have a clay gun like the one used in Sharon Zambito's video? If so, do you use it a lot and is it easy to do? I want recommendations before I spring for the $40.00!

Thanks!

I was thinking about buying the Makin extruder too, but am second guessing the screw top. Wouldn't a squeeze trigger be easier? I'm thinking the screw requires two hands as opposed to just being able to squeeze with one hand and handle the extruded product with the other. Am I missing something? What makes the Makin a good choice? Thanks.

It's cheaper and better on the hands

I'm not familiar with this, what do you use it for? Thanks, Bev

I have the red and black one with the squeeze handle, and it hurts my hand after alot of use.

I have the green Makins one, and love it. icon_smile.gif

Wow TexasSugar. Thanks for giving your input. I would never have thought the green Makin version was better than the black & red one. You just can't beat the advice on this site. I almost don't want to buy anything without checkin with my cakin' girls first! icon_lol.gif
