Advice for using Amaco’s Bisque Fix

Recommended Posts

Hello!  I’ve just pulled my big handbuilt bowl from the bisque fire & discovered a few small cracks I want to repair before I glaze it  (cone 6).  The clay body is white & I’ve purchased some of Amaco’s Bisque Fix and I can’t find instructions for using it.   I think I get the basics (apply with a rubber bib & when dry, sand as much of the excess off as possible)’ but I don’t see anywhere if I need to bisque it again (cone 05)  after application or if I can go straight to the midfire glaze firing.   The reviews I’ve read online aren’t clear, but at least one user bisqued the piece a second time... I’d like to avoid that extra step/time if possible.   Anyone use it & have advice for a newbie?

You do not need to bisque fire it again. I've used it with mixed results. My glossy white glaze turned out rough and matte on bisque fix, but my matte grey glazed covered it perfectly. It definitely repairs cracks though!

No need to bisque as said above. The stuff can show thru a glaze or as noted above change the way a glaze looks where its applied. For that reason sand as much off as you can while sill filling the crack.
