3-HEAD DESIGN WHEELER
The 3 wheels - plain, zig-zag and serrated stitch wheel - can be used for cutting or for making patterns on a variety of sugarcraft and craft media including sugarpaste, flower paste, Modelling pastes and craft clay.
Because these wheels are so fine they do not cause drag, unlike using a knife, and so cuts your paste cleanly and evenly. For very delicate work the small wheel can be used and where the paste is thicker or the detail not so fine the larger wheel may be used for greater speed and stability.
This knife is perfect for all types of craft work, whether cutting out designs in paper or sugarpaste the scalpel blade is fine and sharp and does not snag, and the handle is easily held for precision.It also comes with a ribbon insertion blade.
