Okay here's a couple things you probably don't want to do.

This is a 80x40 pointy glande mould.

1) the larger the glande the harder it is to roll.
2) for a pointy glande you really want it to be proportionally much longer than the other shapes. 2:1, essentially just gives you a ball with pointy ends. Aerodynamically it's never going to self orient along the spinning access and you'd probably be much better off with a simple hand rolled sphere.

3) something this size uses a lot of clay. almost 200gm in this case.
It'll probably be around 180 ish when dried.
Only real use would be target slinging. And for that a hand rolled ball is much better suited.

4) uses an awful lot of plastic - the mould is pictures next to a 60x20 standard shape mould using almost 5x less plastic. So a lot cheaper to buy and much easier to use.

last pic shows an 80x25 pointy glande, all round a much better shape.

Also - for the record, the pointy glandes are the hardest to roll and the most inclines to have holes at the ends. At least that's what I've found.

Okay here's the results of the first classic shape roller.
This is a 75x35 glande. Uses 110 gms of my air dry modelling clay.
After a day drying, it's down to 104.

I figure probably 90-95 fully dried. This stuff keeps it's weight quite well.

And for the record - every one gets 2 text stamps (same word), I just haven't updated the original post. They are small, easy to lose and very quick and cheap to make, so I always throw in a spare Smiley

Not sure when I can get a video up, but I been spending time playing around with it. It's about a 4 inch block, just roll the pieces together.  Here are a few pics of what I did. Yesterday was my first time, today was my second but I am sick, so I think it's giving me some issues, with my head being foggy with my meds.  I apologize fir the large pics, it's my phone, and I domt kmow how to resize em.

I usually email my phone pics to myself as “medium” before posting. Works for the iPhone at least.

Sounds like too much work.  I am not technology savy as it is.
With the roller, all it is, you place the ball of clay in the middle, put the 2 pieces together,  abd roll back and forth. I an gonna try to get a video tonight, but can't say for certain.

resized for you Smiley
And wow - how the hell do you get them that smooth ?
That's way better than the ones I've made for tests Smiley


If you're sensible and have an android phone then this is a great app.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.simplemobilephotoresizer&hl=en
_GB
What i use on the phone.

On the computer I use this:

Photoresizer
zip file attached to this post.
unzip and install - works for all versions of windows 32&64 bit. Adds a right mouse click option to resize photo.
Small is best for posting on the forum.
So once installed you simply select one or more photo's, then right click and select photo resize. Select small and ok and it will resize the pictures and generate some new - smaller images.

If you've got an apple, I not only feel very very sorry for you - but can't help Smiley

Occasionally i have to work on them for clients. Awful machines.
Even more occasionally i have to try and recover files from dead drives.
This could be a very long addendum - basically I'll summarise several thousand words of ranting:  do not buy apple kit !
It's designed to be disposable and they don't give a crap about your data. Once the file system directory goes - you lose everything. Does not happen on windows systems.

Lol.  I think its just tge pictures.  I didn't do anything. It's just how they came about. I did notice on the mold, then inside isn't totally smoothnot too bad, but I might hit it with some sandpaper lightly, to clean it up. It didn't seem to affect the clay,  but on close up look. U can notice it somewhat.  I am very happy with it.

I only use android. And sumsung phones. Anything else. No thanks.
