All Slab Roller Accessories
A variety of materials are available for rolling clay with a slab roller or for covering work surfaces. A brief overview of each follows.
Canvas- Heavy Duty cotton canvas is available both pre-cut for specific Slab Rollers or in bulk to cut custom sizes. Canvas is the most absorbent and durable choice but it will leave a texture on the clay due to its woven surface.
Slab Sheet- Has a completely smooth side that is somewhat absorbent to prevent clay from sticking. Back side is smooth and shiny. Stiffer than canvas- provides some support when transporting slabs. Will crease if folded- best stored flat. Leaves no texture on the clay.
Slab Mat- A non-woven fabric-based material with a smooth, absorbent surface to prevent clay from sticking. Feels a little like very heavy paper and will crease if folded- best stored flat. Leaves no texture on the clay.
