Tip For Smoothing Clay

Smoothing and Leveling longer clay surfaces. I did discover by mistake that if you put some clay oil on your finger (I accidently got some on my fingers while placing a drop in a lid to work with and did not want to waste it) and then rub the surface, you can level & smooth long sections of legs and arms easily. I usually have arms and legs that slightly "roll" up and down along the length of the limb. I used to spend a lot of time scraping them smooth after baking, because trying to drag unbaked clay just deformed the shape I had worked so hard to sculpt.
