I've been doing a lot of work with photopolymer plates lately. Inking them up and running them through a table top etching press. It's amazing how similar a pasta machine is to an etching press. The simple technology is the same. In a pinch you could probably use a pasta machine as a tiny press. Not only an awesome plate material to be used on paper but one can make incredible texture plates for polymer and precious metal clay using photopolymer plates as well. I'm excited at the possibilities.
