Hi again!

I recently saw a dorodango online and found a couple of tutorials that inspired me to make my own.
 (hopefully tomorrow)
However, I hoped maybe some of you would know some tips out of personal experience?

Thanks for your time and effort Cheesy

(Here are the tutorials I found)

Dorodango!!  I made one about a year ago and it turned out pretty cool. I didn't get it realllly shiny but enough that the surface has a nice gloss to it. I pretty much just followed the instructions in Craft magazine. Finding good clean dirt was a little difficult so I recommend coming up with some sort of sieving system to remove chunks and get a nice consistency. I used some wire mesh stretched over a picture frame (previously used for paper-making). Good luck and post pics!
