Attaching a Dry handle


Recommended Posts

Bone dry pieces don't attach well, if at all. You can get it to stick, but as the pieces dry the difference in shrinkage will cause them to separate, either partially or completely. With a mug you want the strongest connection possible, so I wouldn't do it. Better to make a new handle or rehydrate dry one.

Thank you! I was afraid of this :( It’s not what I wanted to hear, but good to know. I like your suggestion to dehydrate.
