i read that note someone posted about throwing clay away. i don't throw clay
away, i just dump it in a big bin, cover it with water and it recycles
itself. another thing i did for the first time this 6 weeks was to take all
the dried clumps from previous projects that i hadn't recycled and had the
kids do carvings. we used toothpicks, bamboo skewers and plastic ustensils
at first, then to clean sculptures up i let them use exacto blades and
sandpaper. the sculptures were wonderful.
