When you compress clay using a stamp tool, the rate at which it dries is different than the un-stamped/uncompressed clay next to the mark. If the clay dries too fast this can cause a small crack to form on the edge of the clay mark sometimes. Rather than discard the work, repair the crack using magic mender. Using a small brush simply brush on to fill the crack and proceed as normal once it is dry. Use Magic Mender to adhere parts together and repair cracks. Can be used on greenware or bisque but must be re-fired for repair to be permanent. Comes in high fire and low fire formulas, use the one that matches your clay. Bottle will not go bad for years, so a small amount will last you a long time. Drying your work slowly under cover is the best way to avoid cracks, but this is a backup plan.
