A really bad habit I get into sometimes is rolling out slabs and forgetting to cover them. This is mostly because they are too wet to start out, so they do have to sit around for a while, and I tend to forget. oops. I had these two slabs that got a little too stiff to be rubber stamped anymore, so I decided to play with some new pendants using liquid clay slip.
So I popped out a bunch of shapes, trying to use as much of the space on the slabs as possible because I didn't want a lot of leftover clay. It was a bit too stiff to roll out new slabs, so the excess would just have to be dried out for reprocessing later.
