Re: [BKARTS] cheap & easy substitute bone folders



 There are 24 students in the class and don't have enough bone
folders for them all.

Macdonalds give smooth edged plastic knives with breakfast hotcakes here in Sydney. I have used them happily. The bowl of a plastic spoon is good for rubbing Put finger in bowl and hold firmly) and many toothbrush handles are OK too. Just break the brush off and trim the broken end with a utility knife and rub with a fine abrasive paper. With a little effort you can make good folders from bamboo (garden rake handles). Treat with silicone hand cream to repel PVA etc.
