Fixing Dry Bags of Clay

Along the theme of wedging bagged clay is a tip to make the job a little easier. I typically buy my clay in bulk (ok, small bulks, but still a quantity in which I get a price break). As such, I may have some bagged clay laying around for a few weeks or months. This clay has a tendency to be a little "stiff" and hard to work with right out of the bag. A great tip I found was to take the bag of clay and drop it on the concrete, four times (once along each side corner edge). This "wakes up" the clay and makes it much more malleable and much easier to wedge.
