Tips for Dollhouse Miniature Crafting- Cleaning the Pasta Machine






Again this week if you are also following my Clay 101 series on my 18” doll channel you have already seen the majority of this content. Since I had filmed it and I thought that the information was perfect for a tips video I decided to use it for both channels. I hope you all don't mind too much.

The secret to successfully using a pasta machine for clay is really to keep it clean. The quick little tips I showed (especially wiping it with the wet wipe and running white scrap clay through) really will help to keep it clean. If you do those two things every time you use your pasta machine you won't have to deep clean it very often.


Just keep in mind to never use any tool to clean the pasta machine that could scratch the rollers. That is why I stick to wooden toothpicks and bamboo skewers. It might take a moment or two longer to clean with those than say a sharp metal instrument but the risk of ruining the rollers is too great. Once you have scratches on the rollers you will always have problems.
