How Dry I am!

You might remember a few months back, I was belly aching that my clay simply wasn't drying fast enough. Fellow artist P.J (see her blog here) told me to use a dehumidifier to pull the moisture out fast. I thought it sounded like a great idea and finally just got around to getting one. I cleared out a portion of my storage room and put in a drying rack. I put up a clear shower curtain and put the dehumidifier inside. Voila! Instant Paperclay kiln!

The dehumidifier REALLY sucks the moisture out the! Way quicker than just letting them sit on their own. I need to put a small fan inside to circulate the air - which I'm sure will lead to even faster drying time.

Now I have no excuse not to have more pieces completed ;) Thanks P.J.!'s a good thing!
