Well the time has come.... no more looking at the bucket of sloppy-ness, no more reaching for the bag of new clay... it's reclaim time!
Jason very kindly guided me through the steps of making a plaster bat which I have now also done at home. I LOVE it! and can't believe I've been putting it off for so long. I have kneaded and batted the clay and put it back into the original bags and onto the shelves amongst the other clay - how satisfying.
