After sizing your coil to your base, lift the coil from your base. In a small cup, mix a small amount of clay and quite a bit of water to make a wet, smooth mixture called slip. Then after set it aside for later use. To score, you will scratch the areas were you will be connecting the coils to the base. Make sure you place the slip on on top of the scoring. Place your coil to the base and knit them together. Also this is putting the two peices together. Lastly, to make it look good, you smooth the coils so no bumps are visible.
