To Make A Hikaru Dorodango, You Only Need Dirt And Water

Hikaru dorodango are spheres of dirt and mud that have been polished to a beautiful shine. The best ones truly appear to be the works of professional sculptors, but anyone can make a dorodango. In fact, Japanese schoolchildren have been shaping them for years. The practice requires great concentration so that the dorodango doesn't crack, and it takes several hours to create a perfectly shiny sphere.
