Welcome to dickblick
Durable and easy-to-clean, this slab roller is less expensive than a pasta machine, and easier to use for rolling clay.
The set includes a 10.5" roller and a rolling board, plus rails for four slab thicknesses — 1/16", 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4".

mini slab roller
from Granada Hills, CA
Comments about Activa Slab Roller:
I need to make thin slabs for ceramic wind chimes that I make. I was excited to find this product, but then was disappointed because the clay sticks to the roller so much that the clay can't form a decent slab. Not sure how to remedy this problem, so instead have gone back to my old eyeball method of creating an even slab.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought it for use with natural clay, so I coated the surface with canvas. That way the clay doesn't stick, and I also use a wooden rolling pin. But I love to use it for rolling out slabs.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Buckhannon WV
All clay is the same thickness now!
Love this thing! Easy to use.

Should have been made of wood
from Penrose, CO
I should have known, clay sticks to plastic. Especially when the clay is moist. This was a great idea, just wrong material.

Great for Rolling Thick Clay
from Tenino, WA
I use this item for my polymer clay figures when I need thicker slabs of clay than my clay machine will make. With the various rails to put in it's great. I did read comments about getting the paper off, but the manufacturer has changed this and mine came off really easy. It is for the most part non-stick, but I found with Sculpey 111 that it tends to stick a bit if the roller and deck isn't wiped off. Other than that, it was a great find and I'm glad I bought it.

O.K., not great
from Birmingham, AL
Would work fine with synthetic clay...real clay sticks....must use corn starch or some other agent to prevent sticking.

Waste of miney
By Mud mutt
Maybe good for Fimo but just not for clay.. Should have realized this was a bust product.

Same problem as everyone else.
I'm really pretty annoyed! I shouldn't have to spend so much time and effort to get fracking packaging glue off of a work surface. The point of this thing is to have a smooth, non stick work surface, for crying out loud!! And it isn't just a couple of dots of glue, it is a huge, thick line diagonally accross the the entire work surface. Arghh!! Do I really have to buy some WD40, just to get the glue off so that I can use it? This is so unnecessary and would be such an easy thing for the company to fix.

Packaging Hard to Remove
By Polymer clay
I have to agree with everyone else. The packaging double sided tape is difficult to remove. I was able to remove with a window scraper, soap, cooking oil, a scrub brush, and really hot water. If you order this, it may take a while to remove the adhesive. I ordered this to use in addition to my pasta machine. I needed polymer clay slabs larger than my pasta machine could handle. This tool is simple and easy to use.
