Paperclay is a composite made by the addition of paper pulp to any type of clay. This thesis examines the suitability of paperclay as a detachable gap filler to repair lost sections in earthenware ceramic artefacts. Normal clay fills used in ceramic conservation have high shrinkage rates between production and end, fired stage.
