Miracles of Paper Clay

When the top section of Jane’s spiral pot was accidentally broken in the biscuit firing there was no need to dispair.  Following the suggestion of others in the class who’s pots had also come croppers in a biscuit firing, she glued it, with the help of Kathy, back together using paper clay.  In this case, her original clay body mixed with loo roll!

The spiral has been refired and the paper clay has become a ‘miracle adhesive’.  Once it is glazed, you will never know it was ever broken…..brilliant!

We all suffer mishaps in the inital firing, so thought this tip would be worth sharing.
