Take the clay and flatten it out.
Place a piece of paper under it then fold the paper over the top of the clay.
Place a few books on top.
Waite a few hours or a day.
This will draw out some of the oil from the clay making it firmer and much more manageable and workable. I found this amazing pictorial while searching online that tells exactly how this is done. I wanted to share this fun tip with y'all. It is a clay saver for anyone out there that does not know this technique.
Until Next time!
