some of you might remember this guy, I had to destroy him recently due to mold and he dried up for the most part.. I will recreate him one day when I can.

I wondered why I always had blood in my nose haha maybe its from this shit. I use a shop vac for clean up and a mop. But I am sure

them annoying dry clay bits are floating around, sticking to the lining of my nose.


With the mold, did you do anything to get rid of it? or just throw the clay out? I usually throw it out. But sense I been short on cash for new supplies I have had to deal with the re-use of clay more so then ever. Bleach seems to do the trick. But there are still those sections with shitty black clay in there.. I can only imagine the shit its giving me.

yeah, i generally will chunk it if its bad.  sometimes on opening a new block it will be spotty back for the start.  sometimes i'll let that slide, but when it starts getting that funky smell to it its time for it to go.  i keep a dehumidifier in the shop to being its partly underground i sometimes have to wash out my older gypsum molds with bleach if they didn't completely dry after putting latex in them before i stored them.  trying to switch over to all plastic or fiberglass molds because of that and of course the weight of them .
