New Clay Extruder by Walnut Hollow
This extruder comes in a nice little plastic storage case with 20 different disks. I've read that the disks for the Makin's extruder will fit this extruder also. I also read somewhere that metal cake decorating tips will fit into extruder... but haven't tested that out myself! If you go shopping for this at Michaels, don't forget to bring a half-price coupon! (Ask me how to get coupons if you don't know.) btw....There's not any information at WalnutHollow.com on this product as yet.
I just purchased my extruder this weekend, so can't tell you anything about long-term durability of product, but it seems well made with sturdy metal parts. It's a good size and is fairly easy to hold onto when cranking. Putting it into a vise would make it even easier! Here's a short video demonstrating it's use with polymer clay. Remember, most air dry clays work well with extruder also (except those very soft & sticky brands).
