Rolling
Rolling out clay seems to be such a basic technique that it should need no explanation. But there are tips to perform even this simple procedure.

Whether you're using a piece of PVC pipe or an acrylic roller, a nonstick work surface or a baking sheet, making metal clay into a very flat sheet takes a little experience. Most people want to exert way too much pressure on the roller and press the clay so hard into the work surface that it becomes attached and can't be removed. This is true even with nonstick surfaces.

So, what's the proper way to roll metal clay? Gently and slowly. Lift and turn the piece 90 degrees every couple of rolls. Remember, the goal is to get the piece to the dryer as quickly as possible. This technique serves two purposes: It keeps the piece from sticking to the work surface and makes it easier to roll the piece to an even thickness.

And, don't roll just in the middle of the piece. That creates a thin center and thicker edges — not a flat piece. Flat means flat, not almost flat or mostly flat.
