In this type of work the need to keep the clay medium from drying while working on a subject requires keeping it wet properly between class periods or letting the subject dry slowly enough so that stress joints do not crack. The use of saturated clothes or paper with water and covering with plastic wrap can be troublesome.
By placing a saturated cloth or a base containing water and placing a clear plastic tube with a cover on
one end and covering the subject with the tube the drying procedure can be controlled and observed.
I would like to experiment with this approach to see if this is a viable method in this art work process.
Is it possible to acquire a 12" id x 16" length of clear
plastic tube to experiment with.
Please advise. Thank you.
