Bray-Poxy is a 2-part moldable epoxy intended for post-firing repairs. Working like clay, its easy to shape, texture, fill gaps, and re-create missing parts.
Available as a 14 oz. package containing approx. 7oz. of part A and approx. 7 oz. of part B**.
** The size (length, width, depth) of each part (A and B) can vary. Each part (A and B) is weighed to ensure that customers receive at least 7 oz. of A and 7 oz. of B. We don’t sell parts that weigh less than 7 oz. Conversely, sometimes we get parts that weigh more than 7 oz. We do sell these parts as part of the package because it’s extra at no cost to you.
For greenware or bisqueware repairs try Bray Patch.
For red clay I mixed terracotta color and applied. Next I covered uncured epoxy with pulverized fired clay so the color and texture matched perfectly. Great product
i've been using bray epoxy since it was east river epoxy--it is wonderful stuff for repairing ceramics or sculptures made from other materials. you can model it just like clay if you need to add to the existing sculpture and you can fill in gaps that other epoxies can't do. the white, especially, takes paint very well. after all these years, there still isn't another epoxy that works as well and has so many uses. thank you for having it!
Received this on time like a month and a half ago. Before I even opened it I could feel that there was a smaller amount of part B than part A. Took pictures and emailed them but never got a reply. I now have more than an inch left of part A that I'll never be able to use. The only reason I'm not giving it just 1 star is that the epoxy did work really well otherwise.
I have used this product before and it is excellent. I ordered 3 packages. Two out of the three come with about 20% less of the Part B. The instructions say mix equal parts, so this makes for all around less product for me to use if one part is missing. This happened to me in the past but I thought it was a fluke. This epoxy is kinda expensive and now I feel a bit ripped off by missing quantity. Again, the product itself is excellent.
This product is great for filling cracks, joining pieces and sometimes reconstructing a detail on a sculpture. This sandable, paintable product makes salvaging some hard work easier. I am relieved that help is on the way when something goes wrong with a piece.
I found that if you use a mat knife you can cut off equal amounts. Mix as they suggest by creating coils and then bunching together and make coils again - the heat from your hands softens and makes it pliable. You can use water to help smooth the epoxy after applying so you can rather it and very little sanding is needed.
I was thrilled to learn about this product. It was the answer I have been looking for in order to repair some treasured ceramic pieces. Wish I had known about this sooner but better late than never.
I had trouble cutting chunks off of equal portions and it was extremely hard to mix. I was thinking the two parts would be a softer consistency and easier to mix. On the application it did not go on smoothly. I did like the result at the end.
I use this epoxy all the time for major & minor repairs or to strengthen my clay sculptures. My favorite is the natural color, but the coloring powders work well, too.
