make sure that the bottom and the sides of the pot are at the
thickness you want the final pot to be.

hlynn1975: agreed! not only do you mark the clay but it's hard to
get out from under your nails.
Fearless Leader: are you using Kato or Premo, Momma?
meplus5kids: Must have been reading my mind. Just thinking to do
this I'd have to cut my nails
hlynn1975: NJ, is that a 'tiger lily'? lol
Fearless Leader: LOL
Fearless Leader: Exactly
Fearless Leader: Tiger lily, LOL
Rossija: tiger tulip?
mommaclara2001: I am not sure. It is a cane that I got from someone.
Fearless Leader: It needs to be warmed a bit or it won't stick
mommaclara2001: It might be to old.
Fearless Leader: might be cold
mommaclara2001: I will keep working on it.
