This instructable shows how easy it is to make your own cutters for clay sculpturing. Cutters are useful when you need every petal on a flower to look similar.
You could probably use these cutters to make real biscuits as well.
Step 1: Tools You Need
Put on gloves to prevent cutting yourself.
Trim of the sides, they may be used as well. But in this instructable I used the centre piece.
Step 2: Constructing the Cutter
Press the raw edge firmly over 5mm. The cutting edge needs to be pressed to a sharp, thin edge as possible for clarity when cutting out your shapes. I used a knitting needle.
Step 3: Join Sides
Then staple the sides together. Now you can easily bend he foil into any shape you like.
(You can fold under a longer piece of aluminium foil if its too difficult to staple a small cutter.)
Step 4: Cutting Through the Clays
I found that that only clay that stuck to the cutters was plasticine.
Step 5: Cutting Through Cold Porcelain Clay
I rolled the Cold Porcelain Clay thinly as well an it cut perfectly. To make leaves, add a centre vein by wrapping the centre with thin wire. Press the pieces against the back of real leaves to gain an impression of real leaf textures.
