I remember the stupid arguments on whether clay dots make a fingerboard sound better. This is a question on using raw clay and making my own dots, because i am to cheap to buy dots. So, has anyone ever taken workable pottery clay, and made fingerboard dots? What do i have to do, just smear it into the holes and let it dry, or fire them (or let it dry) out and then glue them in? I only plan on doing side dots, not fb face dots. what are your thoughts?
