This clay stems from a time when I was using whatever materials I had on hand while attempting to mimmic the chemical composition of Shigaraki clay. Quite plainly, clay is more than its chemical makeup -- even though I may have ended up with a clay body close to the right number of various molecules, the chemistry and physics must be much more complicated. The finished result demonstrates this precisely. If it was as simple as mixing molecules, this clay would not look anything like this. All that said, I do like this body to some degree.
