Since the base was formed quickly, I needed to tackle the bottom of it because it wasn't quite level with the table. I packed clay along the edges of the base to achieve the desired elevation and then tackled the inside by filling it in with more clay. Lastly, I smoothed the surface with a wooden straight-edge and finished it off with the toothbrush.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
