Cut

Large step 1

Cut a piece of sticky-backed foam to fit around the PVC tube without overlap or gaps. Trim the foam to the length of the PVC.


Draw

Large step 2 2

Once the sheet of foam is cut, lay it flat and use a Sharpie marker to draw your design.


Cut Out Pattern

Large step 3

Use an exacto knife to cut on the lines.* Cut through the foam but not the backing paper.


Peel

Large step 4

Peel off parts of the design. Scraps that are removed may be saved and added back later to fill in gaps or enhance the design.


Tape

Large step 5

With the foam right side up, apply painters tape to the surface. This will provide an area to hold the foam while applying it.


Attach

Large step 7

Turn the design over to remove the original paper backing. Carefully wrap the sticky-backed foam onto the roller and remove the painter’s tape. Roll the PVC tube on the table to insure that all foam pieces are firmly attached.


Roll!

Large step 10

You can now use your roller on moist clay to create a beautiful textured pattern!
