Possible Repair Of Broken Bone-Dry Tile?
Posted 27 July 2010 - 06:15 AM
I'm a newbie to ceramic tile making and have a question. I broke one of my tiles in a mosaic and it is in the bone-dry state and underglazed. Is it possible to rejoin these two pieces with a slip made from the same clay body, or do I have to recarve the one tile? Thanks for any insight into this. Eddie

If neither of those two replies work, then wrap the tile in a wrung out to just damp towel, then
wrap it in dry cleaner plastic and leave overnight. You want to add just a bit of dampness to
the entire tile but you don't want to wet it.
Then try either of the previous solutions again.
