Here are a couple of “how to’s” which are also at the end of the demonstration video I showed in class.

How to keep your clay wet between working sessions. Keep it in a dark cool location. DON’T place it near heat or in the sun.

How to properly dry clay so it does not break or crack while drying. Keep it in a dark cool location. DON’T place it near heat or in the sun.

Put the finished structure on a drying rack so the air can reach the area underneath. Loosely place a bag on top. leave the bottom of the bag open. It will dry slowly from the bottom up and not too fast or it will crack.
