hahahahahahah...

ok, unless you have bore sizer that's about 300 bucks, how are you gonna get a
right paint/barrel match?  also you can't just make a barrel out of ceramic
clay w/o any inner coating.  ceramics are kinda rough.  i guess a really poor
way of doing it would to get a piece of paper and wrap it around a couple of
paintballs to get the size, then build clay around that piece of paper that is
wrapped up (don't mean to be immature, but in means of explaining the paper, it
kinda looks like a doobie).

and why do you have to sneak clay out?  don't they give you clay to take home?
(i'm just wondering b/c i always thought that schools give you supplies to work
at home with, but i don't take art so i don't know much)

You would have to glaze the inside nicely before it would shoot anything. and how
would you attach it?
