Re: [BKARTS] cheap & easy substitute bone folders

Jen: All kinds of implements will substitute for a bone folder, including a
kitchen knife, as you mentioned. I have often used plastic and wood clay
tools instead of bone folders in classes and workshops. You can get some of
those much more cheaply than a bone folder, usually about $1 at Michael's or
similar joints.
