Step 3: Make planets

I used La Doll Premier Lightweight Stone Clay which is super light weight and ideal for this project.  If the planets were much heavier it would likely unbalance the skewer and effect the rotation.  I rolled out the little balls for the planets, they are obviously not to scale.  Mercury was the smallest and Jupiter the biggest, and of course I added the ring for Saturn.  I stuck them on the wire and let them dry overnight (it is an air dry clay).
