Halloween: Imprint [Cauldron] Shape Cutters
ABOUT: Blackbird & Violet Shape Cutters are 3D printed from PLA, a biodegradable plastic.
Their cutting edge is approx. 0.4mm & base is 2-3mm to support an easy cut-out.
FINISH: All efforts are taken to reduce any bumps created by the printing process, however sometimes some slip through. These are light & can be easily removed during your sanding process.
COLOUR: Print colour varies & you may receive a different colour to that pictured or a mix of colours.
Shape Cutters are heat sensitive. They are formed by melting PLA to then cool into their shapes & such can be undone the same way - they don't like heat over 50 degrees or prolonged exposure where heat can build up.
Leave cutters in direct sunlight, near heat sources, in your car on a hot day or put in the dishwasher.
Clean with warm, soapy water & a soft tooth brush.
Wipe between uses with a baby wipe, rubbing alcohol or similar.
A cool space is ideal, such as drawers, stacked containers. Pegboards are great however do ensure the sun magnified through a window doesn't hit them!
25mm: 25mm(h) x 17mm(w) + Mirror Cutter
35mm: 35mm(h) x 24mm(w) + Mirror Cutter
45mm: 45mm(h) x 30mm(w) + Mirror Cutter
Full Set: one of each of the sizes above. Saves you 20% vs buying each individually.
Every Organic Cutter is sold in a mirrored pair. For example, if you purchase the 28mm cutters you will get 2 cutters, same dimensions but facing different directions.
SIZE: Size is the 'inner' of the cutter & will be the size of the resulting shape cut out. Measurement is taken at the widest or tallest part of the shape and all sizes are as accurate as possible but allow for a +/- 0.5mm variance.
Notes on using Imprint-style cutters:
- Imprint cutters take some learning, we recommend practising on scrap clay first.
- They are designed for clay 2.5-3mm thick.
- They work perfectly on clay the thickness of the"0" setting on an Atlas pasta machine.
- If you are using depth guides, roll down to their depth, then remove guides & roll again to seal clay to your work surface/tile.
- Ensure cutting edge is pressed down evenly (Do not press on the "stamping" elements until they're cutting edge is pressed down). Remove from clay by lifting from the more intricate end of the cutter first.
- The smallest cutters will be the most difficult - roll clay slightly thinner if that helps or alternatively dip cutter into water lightly & then cut! The water acts as a non-stick agent.
