MIXING.
nil
your ingredients will likely come from a bag of clay, the sand from children's play, and straw from the passage way near the pond. please do wear a mask when mixing dry ingredients (they are non-toxic, but are particulate, which means that they may be small enough to stick in your lungs, long term effects not good). first mix the sand and powdered clay together, add the earth, get participants to tell you what feels right. then add water until the mixture has the consistancy of dough.
