- Mix two parts slip or clay to one part mender.
- Do not wet the piece to be mended.
- Fill the jar with any high-fire slip or clay to the ridge on the jar. Mix completely.
Note: It is important to only mix one color and type of slip per jar. Mark each jar with the color and type of slip. Yield is 2 ounces once the desired slip is added.
- Apply mender to both sides with a soft brush. Do not over apply. Press two sides together, when mender beads out of both sides you have full coverage. Hold the pieces together a minute or two until they remain joined.
- If Greenware: Remove excess immediately. Clean when semi-dry.
- If Bisque: Let mender dry completely, then clean it as you would clean greenware.
- Fire the piece when mender is completely dry. You may apply color before firing. Fire the piece to the same temperature as the slip or clay you mixed with the mender.
