Help needed: The clay I'm forming by hand gets cracky and splits so fast that even a simple form isn't finished unless I'm rushing. Please suggest ideas for longer, less rushed forming time. I'm using low fire clay, Standard White 105 brand new from the box and pinching and forming animals and small pendants and beads. I can roll out a snake and then it's too dry. That fast. I can roll a bead and pinch a couple times, then cracks start if I continue. Super dry hands maybe? My guess is to use a mist spray, cover, wait, work a few minutes, mist, cover, wait...I do have a lot of patience! Thank you! Kathy
