I had the Home Mat in my cart but took it out. I thought it over again and, although hesitant, put it back in. I recently tried it out and now know with certainty this will be my "go-to" forever mat. I did not have to worry about the fondant sticking to the rolling pin, the dimensions became even more clear as I rolled, and, just as described, I was able to release the fondant from the mat and handle it with one hand. Being able to position the fondant where needed was a novice's dream.
I absolutely LOVE this product.
The clay gun extruder has many uses. With the 20 disc designs you can create many different embellishments for your projects. The round discs are for vines, stems, borders, and letters. The screen discs are for hair, grass, straw and floral stamens.The flat slot discs are for weaving baskets, lattice, ribbons and bows. The square, triangle, half round discs are for bricks, logs, borders, and can be cut and used for small beads.
