Play Doh extruder fun!

I finally broke down and bought a new play doh extruder. I hunted for a used one at the thrift store but they never had the correct size round hole.

Today I built myself a clay worktop by covering an old board with a cheap 100% cotton shower curtain. I wrapped it around the board to the back side, pulled it very tight and stapled it. The little squares on the cloth came in very handy today as a measuring device.

It was a beautiful fall day to play with my new toys outside under the vine walk. This is the start of something 🙂

I wasn’t to thrilled with it, until I paddled it. Which flatten it all out and changed the round balls into triangle shaped pieces. That is what I love about clay, the unexpected happy moments.

I plan on adding three feet and maybe some drainage holes in the bottom, Joe requested a little sieve for rinsing grapes. I might also add some decoration sprigs around the rim, or maybe two two handles, or both.
