Cookie Extruder/Gun

It's funny what comes to mind when you want to try something new.  I have a collection of junk that would blow your mind, not exactly a hoarder, but I love stuff and have it everywhere!  Especially old kitchen goodies.  Thus the cookie gun that was very popular to make homemade cookies with in the past...remember?  Anyway, since I don't cook that much and don't need to make cookies for sure, I used my cookie extruder/gun on some clay last night again and here is what I came up with...

I got the clay ready and it was nice and soft to begin with, so I extruded some strips of clay that look like the old Spritz cookies, cut it up into about one inch pieces and rolled those pieces around a paintbrush and fiddled with the ends a bit and tada--
some pretty cool looking beads!

They are dry this morning and did not crack at the edges, they look pretty good, so in a few days I will wet sand, glaze and fire them.  I am excited about these and will try the cookie extruder/gun again...maybe today!

thanks for stopping by, take care


  1. I am anxious to see these finished. Interesting that you can make them with a cookie press. Cool.

  2. Looking good Marti! Can't wait to see the finished product!

  3. Have you fired these yet???? I wanna see!
