ClayMat is designed to be used as a bottom canvas on a slab roller.¬† It can be replaced as the bottom canvas or used on top of the bottom canvas.¬† For the top canvas use the one that came with your slab roller.¬† For hand rolling clay use ClayMat as the bottom canvas with a plain canvas on top.¬†¬†
Care instructions:¬† Do not fold ClayMat in half to act as a top and bottom canvas.¬† It is recommended to keep your ClayMat on a flat surface.¬† Allow it to become completely dry before storing.¬† Always store your ClayMat in an uncovered position to allow air to dry the surface.¬† Never stack ClayMat under a damp canvas, this can possibly form mold or mildew on your ClayMat.¬† After using ClayMat several times the grid pattern can be rejuvenated by wiping the canvas with a damp sponge and allowing it to dry.¬†
ClayMat is made from 100% cotton with a 20oz weight (standard canvas for slab rollers). Available in 24" and 30" widths.¬† The grid marks are laid out in 2" squares with 1" hatch marks on the vertical and horizontal edges.¬† The sides are finished with a salvage edge and surged sides which means there are no unraveled edges.
Tip:¬† Keep two ClayMats on hand.¬† One for use with white clay and the other for use with darker clays.
