tinfoil - clay - tinfoil - clay - tinfoil etc. Cling film and wax
paper are also used for this, but some cling film reacts with the clay,
going gooey after a while, and wax paper can leach the clay and make it
stiffer. Sometimes you want to do this, but only intentionally! If
you have any questions about conditioning, just ask! Or visit
glassattic.com, which is a great on-line resource for polyclayers.
