Letting Clay Dry

Thanks for the recipe on making your own clay. Does anyone know the proper way to let your piece dry? What surface should it be on while drying?

Thank you in advance.

According to my girlfriend the art teacher, clay needs to dry slowly to prevent cracking. A cool dark place is best. At school, her student pieces sit on an unfinished plywood shelf. I don't think the clay cares too much where it sits -- just be sure it isn't on something that can be damaged by moist clay.
