I LOVE YOU STUFF ! I make puppets and have a tough time with the crackle finish !!!!! Your clay looks so smooth and your crackle perfect, it sucks to have the clay crack while the piece is drying or the crackle finish just smudge and smear ! any idea's ? I have a great puppet with a cracked nose. Any hints ? the details are great and we add them over the crackle with paint pens but once again when we go to varnish it smears ! I teach a puppet making class and we would love to know some of your process to make our puppets not crack or smear, thanks again and I love your blog ! We (puppet class) adore you !
