Posted 12 May 2013John Calver is one that springs to mind.

Posted 4 May 2013Think double bag, or triple bagged, with moist towel.
I've not seen any thirty year old plastic bags in good condition, I know they don't bio-degrade particularly quickly, but I'm sure they won't last that long in a cave - rodents are prone to nibbling at plastic stuff too.
Wooden barrels rely on moisture to keep the wood swollen and thus watertight, wont the barrels just draw that moisture from the clay - maybe slowly, but it's still going to dry out.
It's sounding (to me) as though this stored clay is going to need plenty of attention, I'd envisaged squirrelling it away and leaving it for thirty years.
Posted 3 May 2013If we were to postulate that Futurebird has found their cave, how would they wrap/prepare the clay to be in good condition in 30 years time?
I'm assuming from reading the benefits of aged clay that it needs to remain moist.
Posted 30 Apr 2013I wouldn't worry so much about the color in the bucket. If you're certain it didn't get contaminated, go ahead and use it.
Thanks Neil, I think to be on the safe side I'll use this on something else in the future and make some fresh stuff up anyway, I really do want it to be white in this instance, it's such a small quantity it's not worth worrying about, and the old stuff may produce a nice surprise when I do use it.public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif
