Re: two dry pieces of clay

You may be able to join them with this combination: equal parts clay, vinegar & karo syrup. I got this suggestion years ago on a clay listserv & have used it successfully at times. You may end up with a crack where the seam is, but then if it's glazed and doesn't get a lot of stress, will probably be ok.

  Vinegar Slip is good for leather hard clay pieces or pieces that still have some moisture in them. As for bone dry pieces I don't think it will work or I should say that I haven't had any luck doing that.

    I have two air dried pieces of clay that I need to attach to the
    origial piece - pre bisque stage. These pieces fell off. Can I
    use vinegar to do this? Or any other suggestions.
