Step 3: Prepare Your Mat

Get ready to cut. Using blue painter’s tape, secure your sheet of clay to the mat. Set your cutting guide to “heavy paper” if you have an E2, or use {speed:5 pressure:5 depth:2} if you don’t. And for both, I recommend the multi-cut feature and have it cut TWICE.

<p>Auto die cutting machines can cut sheets with different <br>designs. But how can it possible with polymer clay? Will it affect machine's <br>process? <a href="http://www.printingpressmachineries.com/autoprint-repetto.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.printingpressmachineries.com/autoprint-repetto.html</a></p>
You stated that the clay was flexible after baking. Once you get them cut out, what do you do with them? I make jewelry and thought this would be fun to try, seeing that I also have a Cricut machine. But if the clay stays flexible it probably wouldn't work. I do like what you came up with though.
good luck.. very interesting..
