Clay Mender is an “enhanced slip” that is intended to be used to repair and/or add attachments to greenware or bisque.

Use on greenware or bisque to mend, fuse and correct clay defects. Simply moisten pieces with water-no extra adhesive required!

Clay Mender is certified as Non-Toxic.

General Use:

  • Scoring the location where an attachment will be placed will strengthen the bond.  Use a needle tool, toothpick, etc. to score the surface.
  • Apply a generous coat of AC-306 and immediately and firmly press the pieces together, holding them into place for 10-20 seconds until they become affixed.
  • Let the area dry.
  • After drying, the areas can then be sanded and smoothed to prepare for decoration.
  • A top dressing of an underglaze may be needed.
  • Clay Mender sometimes will show a slightly different colour than the clay being used.
  • There are times when the glaze will not readily adhere to the mended area and the top dressing of an underglaze will overcome this problem.
  • Fire to shelf cone 04.
  • Do not spray.


Tips:

  • If there is an area that did not fill in completely with Clay Mender, an additional application may be necessary.
  • For larger cracks/repair areas: thicken Clay Mender with a little clay to create a spackle-like paste.
  • For holes:  thicken Clay Mender as above. Fill in the area slowly and let it dry. Repeat until the area is filled and level with the surrounding areas. A piece of cardboard can be used to support the back of the missing area while you work.
  • Hairline cracks can be difficult to repair. It helps to widen the crack and then fill this area with the Clay Mender, thus bonding the gap.
