Carolyn's Coffee Grinder Sacrificed to the ClayPen
Ok NJ, I don't have a food
processor, but I do have an electric coffee
grinder. I know it is smaller, but then I use smaller amounts of clay. I
no longer am brewing organic coffee beans, so haven't used it in like two
years. Can I use it for clay?
If it can grind coffee beans it'll chop clay. That's just usually such
a small container, like a half a handful. I'd just do it in short
bursts, brrrrrppptttt, brrrrpppttt. That's it. Then check. You don't
want the chunks to be too fine or any design in your cane ends will be
too cut up to see. Smaller chops, finer chops got to be made into
smaller beads, the larger beads with fine chop only looks blurry from
a distance. Up close, busy...sometimes too busy.
If you have finely chopped stuff and you have enough small beads, do
the "ick" save. Mix the fine chop with some larger bits. Like I did
with the last three pictures in the chop pallet section.
So you going to sacrifice the coffee bean grinder to the claypen? No
way to test to see if it'll be ok, for once used, that's it. Keep us
posted on its use, more folks have coffee grinders than food
processors I reckon. That sort of experimentation might be useful.
ROTFLMAO! Ok, I got all
of the coffee out of it. lol The only really dried up stuff I could
find was some very dry crumbely brown. Put it in there with a couple of
drops of oil, and gave it a spin. Did the pulse thing, then went for it.
lol It worked as far as breaking it up! lol
Ok, here is the deal...I took
half of a small block of hard crumbly Fimo and
