APT-II PORCELAIN / STONEWARE ENHANCER INSTRUCTIONS
APT-II Enhancer is an acrylic emulsion additive that is food safe and non-toxic. It cleans up with water and has an indefinite shelf life. Usage techniques and firing methods are not altered. PROTECT FROM FREEZING.
APT-II Enhancer will thicken all brands of slip and clay bodies, enabling the ceramist to attach, mend and create surface decorations. This process can be performed on greenware and bisque.
APT-II PORCELAIN / STONEWARE ENHANCER CREATES A BETTER SLIP MENDER:
q Bonding occurs immediately.
q Mended area dries to the same softness as the greenware.
q Mended area may be cleaned immediately.
q Mended area does not shrink and leave a stress crack.
q Colors and glazes adhere to mended area without showing a difference in color.
q Slip mixture will adhere to glaze fired surfaces.
q Slip mixture will not produce odors or acid fumes in kiln.
PREPARING - *SLIP MIXTURE
For Mending and Attaching
? Pour fresh slip into container.
? Add APT-II Porcelain/Stoneware Enhancer into slip until it begins to thicken to a consistency of cake batter.
? If *Slip Mixture becomes too thick for attaching or mending, thin back with slip - not water. (Adding water will increase shrinkage.)
? Unused *Slip Mixture may be stored in an airtight sealed container for several days. Add more slip if it becomes too thick.
? If *Slip Mixture is left open to air, it will dry and become greenware.
