Marx Magic Mender......


ROCKS!  I swear -- so many products claim to do things they don't, that it's rare to find one that truly does.  This product has saved my work so many times in handbuilding the Crow-Kins (I have problems with keeping their hats in place).  I even took a handbuilding class because I figured there must be a secret I didn't know.  Nope.  I scored and slipped, but the area available for joining is so small, I inevitably run into issues.  This stuff saves the day every time on greenware.  I haven't had to use it on bisque yet, so I have no idea how it works with it.

Anyway....just saying.
