I learned that sculpting isn't easy & it takes a lot of work . I learned that when making these pieces you should always have a venting hole so that no air is trap inside . Also how to stick indivual clay pieces together so they don't fall apart . If I were to do this again I would change the object I made and I would do better shaping and detail . Overall my piece isn't that bad but it could have been better and it didn't break or explode .
