Hello big ed,
Just read this thread and am fascinated with your restoration results. I have a piece where the glaze has worn thin and would like to restore it. Please could you recommend a good ceramic glaze varnish.

I assume there a many glaze varnish products out there , I have only used Craft PVA , this is a hobbycraft product , it is a multi purpose medium which dries clear , it can be used for gluing , painting mix and glazes , it's pretty cheap ,you could try it and see what you think , Ed

Thanks Dan , it needs a bit more refining , but then again these pieces aren't known for their finesse, it is something that i might look into one day as long as the work doesn't get too tricky , iv'e only done 3 or 4 before so might be worth reading up on .

Superglue. clean the surfaces first, practice joining them up, use a tiny amount, you only have one shot at it!

Iv'e really got my work cut out with this one , Hannah McAndrew Kindly picked it up for me and posted it , despite expertly packing it didn't survive the ordeal and is broken in half and parts missing the top half is like a road map with cracks running everywhere , it's filthy with yrs of neglect ( been outside for yonks ) I did manage to make out the base mark incised C Gorry 69 , will post pics and see what occurs ( i may be some time ) Laughter pity as it was a magnificent piece at one time .

Tbh Ed, it didn't look like it would survive being taken off the shelf let alone being posted!

I agree , but the seller never mentioned cracks , etc , but hey ho it was cheap and I'll enjoy having a go at repair and clean , the Colin Pearson influence is definitely there in it .
