Oooo! Do tell! I've been hankering for a clay extruder but not wanting to pay $30 and drive an hour to get it!

For all who are interested, here are two links that will show you how. It only cost me about $5.00 and it works great!




materials list:
*caulking gun
*1 1/2" test caps
*1 1/2" pvc pipe(comes in 2ft length, had cut into 3-8" sections, would probably have cut a tad longer)

Enjoy!

It is PVC pipe.

Sooo... how did it come out? How do you get your holes in the test cap? A drill? Can an exacto blade cut it? It all sounds so interesting and much easier and affordable than the usual!

I saw one like this used on Food Network Challenge by a well known cake artist. Unfortunately, his name is escaping me right now. icon_rolleyes.gif ....he's the one from Virginia.
