Dear All,
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
