Bisc repair –Denise Austin

Pottery tip of the day:

by Denise Austin
Keep on hand bisque fired shards of the clay body you are working with. if a crack appears on a piece after bisque fire, grind the shards to a fine powder mix with a bit of sodium silicate and use the “paste” as a patch. once the patch is applied to the crack, if piece is small enough pop in microwave for 2-3 minutes, if it’s a larger piece another bisque fire may be needed. i’ve used this technique very successfully. Thanks Denise!!!
