  • Condition clay to make it more pliable as needed by placing it in a zip lock type plastic bag and knead with hands.
  • Use water on fingertips to help smooth clay as needed. Use wet brushes to smooth tight spots.
  • Use a hard surface such as a large tile or piece of glass to roll out clay.
  • Sand dry clay lightly to smooth out major imperfections.
