  1. If you can't fire piece, can you leave it dry and then paint it. I bought a sculpture made in the 1960s. The piece was not packed correctly and the base and about 1/8th of the statue broke off. Tried everything to fix it including drilling hole and putting metal rod in, glue, etc. Nothing worked, I had a 10 lb piece of clay around. I decided to ram the statue into the piece of clay, making a base . I incorporated the broken legs of the statue so that they "sunk" in. I carved out a 2 tier base and am letting it dry completely. The sculpture is heavy and about 27" tall. I tried to leave enough solid clay to hold it up. I did not hollow out the base because it wouldn't be heavy enough to hold the sculpture . Once it is thoroughly dry, I intend to paint it. Will it hold up?? Also what kind of paint? Acrylic or oil?? Help!! Thanks in advance for your help.
