When I joined a swap. It gives you an idea of what others out there are doing.

And it really makes you push your own work too, doesn't it...

I cover my pasta machine with a plastic shower cap. It's one of those that you use a few times and then throw away. Got them from an Atlantic City Casino Hotel. Works great.

Yes it does, at least I think it does. I think I've improved with each swap even.

There have been several "ah hah!" moments for me.

1. I discovered PCC. That was HUGE.

2. After buying a pasta machine, I switched to Premo. I'm now on my third pasta machine.

3. This one seems so silly now, but it took me YEARS to learn this -- you not only can but on some projects SHOULD do multiple bakings. Sure, I "knew" this all along, but it took forever for it to soak in!

4. Make a cane, then let it REST. (See No. 2)

5. Sanding and buffing makes a HUGE difference. (See No. 2 -- I was a stubborn little clayer, because I was so excited about all the possibilities I wanted instant results)

6. Five years ago, I moved 750 miles to a city that has a guild. Wow! Just being around people who also had pasta machines and all the other gadgets, materials and doodads we all use and love was eye-opening. And the inspiration I get from these people cannot be measured.

Experience brings patience, doesn't it?
I found the local guildhasreally helped me as well.

...when I stopped asking myself "what went wrong" and began paying attention to what went right. Granted the hard lessons teach, but they don't reward.
