LC Slicer – Chrome for cutting super thin and even sized slices from polymer clay to make the most of your canes and mokume gane.
The Czech manufactured robust cutting / slicing tool for polymer clay is a unique tool for creating consistently perfect thin and clean cuts to produce even slices of polymer clay. It is a user friendly tool with a moving base and a wide cutting window, size 12 cm x 10 cm (4 3/4 inches x 4 inches).
This product requires some assembly. See video below on how to assemble the LC Slicer & Ease. You may wish to refer back to this once you receive your slicer.
As a FREE GIFT you get the Grid sticker for the LC Slicer & Ease, a red Magnetic pad and LC Lubricant.
An optional accessory (available as a separate purchase) is the LC angle base. The LC Angle Base fits onto the LC Slicer, allowing short canes and stacks of clay to be sliced. It can be adjusted so that the clay cane or slab is presented to the blade at an angle for interesting effects with mokume gane.
“One of the most elusive things to get in the art of polymer clay is the perfect, thin slice. You can use your regular blade to slice canes and skim a layer off a slab of mokume gane, but if your blade is too thick or dull you get drag lines, smearing, and a blurry image. Sharp tissue blades are a huge improvement, but even with a very skilled touch and a lot of patience, the blade wobbles and the slices come out wedge-shaped and uneven. It’s very easy to waste a lot of your precious cane with awkward and unusable slices. Scrap piles mount as you seek the elusive even slices. There are several slicer tools on the market, and each one does help make better slices. But the one that’s taken the market by storm recently is the LC Slicer. Read more……..
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The LC Slicer is not a tool to be used by or around children. Never reach under the blade or cutting mechanism. The blade is extremely sharp and extreme care should be taken when using this tool.
