try using diffrent clay, and the numbers probably will be close no matter what
I have attempted about 4 different clays, but thank you for your suggestion! And sorry, I think I worded that incorrectly. There is only a 1 centimeter distance between our 0% and 10% mark. Like, each mark is about 1 millimeter apart. Have you happened to come across this issue?
Try Fun Tack, the stuff that you use to put posters up. It works much better than clay. As for the other problem, try to find a narrower straw.
