Start with a shape of clay similar to the slab you will roll.
1
For small slabs, clap it out in your hands. (No rolling in or table cover required.)
2
To roll on the table, cover first with a sheet or fabric. You must tie it, clamp,or tape it tightly.
3
Roll and then turn, roll and turn. This allows the clay to stretch but not stick.
4
Use pressure across the middle, try not to roll over the edge.
5
Make thickness guide strips with craft sticks. This is helpful for beginners.
6
Connect 4 craft sticks with double sided tape. Repeat with 4 more.

Slabs can be cut with a needle tool, knife, wooden stylus, a sharp pencil, or even a paper clip.
