Re: [teacherartexchange] table coverings for clay

I don't "get" the masonite thing. Don't most of us use plaster bats under work
in progress? Bats control hunidity and maintain the plasticity of the clay for
much longer periods than masonite. A 25 lb. bag of plaster fills plenty of pie
pans to make bats the work so nicely atop turntables. Once wrapped in plastic,
clay stays nice and moist if bats are properly soaked in water.

The vinyl tablecloths sound like a great idea.
