Because there are variables beyond my control (clays, papers, water, mixing errors and etc) always pre test fire what you have before a big project. No guarantee can be offered that 'alternative" commercial paperclays now on the market will meet the all the performance advantages of my high performance trademark P'Clay® brand only available from licensed manufacturers/distributors.
Dampen both sides with water, scratch the ends, brush on a little P'Slip®, and press together.
join between bone dried parts:
As in photo above, dip the bone dry end in water (bowl to back) to re-wet the end just a little- the dark area is the wet part, light section is bone dry.
Remove, then apply p'slip (slurry paste of watered down p'clay shown in bowl to front) score and press together or add soft join with more soft p'clay inbetween also.
Also in the photo above a fresh pliant leaf has been added to the end of a bone dried coil paperclay stick. Improvisation chances like this allows imagination and play without risk of loss like in past.
If you want to reinforce, alter, or extend, putty in soft P'Clay ® with same method.
Take advantage of bone dry supporting "legs" as in photo to right.
Multiple workperiods allow all kinds of alterations and assemblies for structures. Each time the parts dry, it gets really hard and won't deform easily which helps.
