I have been asked to copy a Mexican Mortar for a friend from Mexico. She has used it for making salsa and the mortar is cracked. I want to make is safe to use. The mortar is 8 inches across and 4 inches tall.
What clay should I use to make it? I usually use B-Mix or Speckled Buff. She wants to have the same pattern on the inside as the old one.
Thanks for any help.
