How To: Create a Dorodango, a Japanese Mud Sphere



Dorodango - 泥 (どろ doro) "mud" and だんご (dango) "rice dumpling" - is a traditional pasttime for many Japanese school children. Dirt is mixed with water, then slowly shaped into a perfect, shiny or textured sphere.   That's it. Mud and time. Bruce from Dorodango.com has perfected the process, and is happy to share it with us.

  Read all about the process here.

Anyone ever tried one of these? Let us know about it in the   comments below.
