This was to see if I could decorate a bit as well as make the decorations a bit functional. One thing that makes these clay whistles hard to play, is that it is hard to keep one’s fingers firmly in place on the holes.
When playing a melody, it is hard to refind a hole. So I thought I might be able, with a bit of forethought, make these holes easier to find. However, the hands that play this must be small, because it dawned on me afterwards, that MY fingers won’t be able to reach the holes well after the clay shrinks.
