No scale? Try string!

Pottery tip of the day:

Don’t have a scale?

But you want to know how much clay it takes to make the same size forms?  Just use string.  Make a ball of clay in the size you need for whatever project, then wrap string around the circumference and cut.  Then you have a piece of string/thread that is the exact size you need for the piece.  Also, you can tag the threads for next time, and they fit well for storage in anything…books, bowls, even a nail on the wall.
