Stick­ing parts to­gether

ImagineFX - - In Depth Clay Faerie Houses -

The parts of the fairy houses need stick­ing to­gether be­fore they be­come too dry to bond suc­cess­fully. This avoids crack­ing, be­cause the clay shrinks when it dries. I do this when they’re leather hard: I score the edges be­ing joined with a knife, then use wet clay ‘slip’ as a glue, be­fore press­ing them firmly to­gether.
