Thanks to all of you!
Wow cool! I can imagine that's a pretty precise job building a djembi drum
And then to get a good sound of it when it's done must be a good reward!
We used clay that drys in the air, no need to bake, just keep it wet when you are working on it and it will stay flexible. Next time I just need to put it in a room that is a little bit more moist. It dried a little too fast so it showed some cracks, but I managed to fix those pretty well
Mostly we chose that because we don't have a kiln to bake the clay, and probably the wire would melt too!
a ha! i figured you were using non firing clay, just had to enquire tho incase , the wire armiture is a good idea to maintain rigidity, you couldnt do that with normal kiln clay though, it would cause the figurine to crack due to the metal having different thermal characteristics and air pockets/expansion .Yeh the djembi is mad, its about half an inch thick , couple of feet tall, quite wide at the top,just like a wooden one cept clay, i made my own skin and tied it off with cord and wooden blocks to tighten.
Bloody good one, there is no revelation on this earth higher than art and music i believe.
Hope you update this post soon with more pics.
