How do you pick up greenware?

Reducing Breakage

Are you breaking greenware when picking it up or holding it? Hold the whole piece in the palm of your hand. It is very fragile at this stage. If you put your fingers inside the piece via an opening, such as the leg or arm opening, you will break it. This is also true when cleaning the piece. I broke EVERY piece of my first doll by holding it at the holes.
