  1. Help! Attached you will see my dog sculpture made from commercially produced paper clay. I have used paper clay extensively with much success. This piece was slow dried over a month. I suspect that I failed to sufficiently compress the areas that cracked or broke off. I would like to rescue it since the head and face are intact. Is there a cold finish such as epoxy, bondo or other product that I can use to cover the cracks and build up the areas that broke away? This sculpture is very special to me and I want to do anything I can to rescue it. Thanks in advance for any kind advice.
  2. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with using shellac or other varnish as a cold finish on a cone 6 body. I'm making some small nonfunctional work that I would ideally love to glaze clear over underglaze, but it's very 3-dimensional and trying to glaze fire it is a nightmare/logistical impossibility. I'm thinking of underglazing, firing, then using shellac but I'm not finding much info on shellac as a cold finish for pottery. I hate the idea of it deteriorating, getting sticky, etc. over the years. Thanks!
