Yesterday at my clay class our teacher brought some white clay to work with. I had never worked with white clay before but I thought it would be just like regular clay. So wrong! I don't know if it was this particular batch of clay that was of poor quality but really it was just impossible to sculpt it. It was so granulated that making the facial features was almost impossible, it took me literally more than half an hour to make the eyebrows and nose. Although I was not happy with how they looked working on them more was just not happening. I hate the hair, the arms are positioned wrong and really I almost had a nervous breakdown making the thing. Next time I'm sticking to my old fashioned red clay!
