Last night, after spending part of the day working on the HyLo talk, I:


  • Hung out with madmadmammim, phoebus, sweaterella, sackofbob, and dan fernandez at amy b's soon-to-be-not-her-apartment, which was lots of fun. I got to sneak a peek at the yearbook proofs that use Skibo, and they look really cool. Also there was apples-2-apples, which never fails to be a good time
  • Went over to the Yurt for Making Things and a Movie. Salt and flour "homemade play-doh" is cool.

Aw, man -- I grew up with the home-made variety. We never got the real stuff for me (my sister did, though).

I still remember the gritty, dries-out-the-hands feeling.

What's new to me is that you can bake it to a relatively actual-fired-clay-esque consistency.

We have many a christmas tree ornament made this way. It doesn't age all that well, unfortunately: humidity will cause it to slowly (over a period of a decade or so) grow brittle and then turn to powder.

This is what _tove tells me glaze is for.

Hmm... honey-glazed flour & salt pottery. Sounds tasty!

Varnish. Which is to say, resin-y, not watery.
