Try using handles on the corners of the bill board tarp and your neck, back,and arm muscles don't get sore. The thigh is what's used.

screened my clay before mixing. I t can be done with hardware cloth up to
1/2 inch and it should pass the mortar mixer test with no surprising jerks.

Ive had some friends that used a mortar mixer, they said that it works but
if theres larger rocks in your clay the mixer might catch and give you a
mighty jerk so be ready. Make sure you get insurance on your mixer they
experienced some hefty dents from stubborn rocks. If its a time and manpower
thing go for the mixer but if you can dance your walls into creation dance
