Having that said, I think we ought to be open to suggestions from others and to do our very best to make changes within these moldable 10% we have (or maybe I only have 8% left now that my youth has passed by).
Parts of me are still moldable as a little bit of clay.
I changed the pot for flower leaves. Then I used a painting brush and water to make the clay look smoother.
My first hand has started to dry. I went over it with a moistured sponge.
