Where do you get "pasta machines" ?
There are various places to get pasta machines, and they come in different sizes and degree of quality, etc. Your best and quickest bet (if you don't have a relative with an old one they don't want) is to get an Amaco brand from Michaels... they're normally around $25 but Michaels also has a 40% off bi-weekly coupon in the paper that brings that down to about $15.
The Amaco is not an Italian
-made machine so is not as sturdy and smooth handling as an Atlas or other Italian-made brands, but fine for general use if they're not stressed too much. You can always move up to a more expensive one if you get into clay a lot. (btw, there's another, brand new pasta machine now available at Michaels for more money, but it still has a few bugs to work out so I'd go for the Amaco for now).
There's much more info on the types and brands of pasta machines, as well as where to buy or order them, how to not overstress them, how to clean them, and things you can do with one, etc., on this page of my site if you want to check it out:http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/pastamachines.htm
LOL! I use to work at a Michael's.
I feel so dumb! I figured a place like that would have it.
But I'm never sure.
You can always find craft tools in the randomness of places.
But thank you!
I'll have to look into buying one.
I went out and got some colored sculpey last night..
It's alot harder to work with then it looks!
